10th Annual International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare

As the celebration of the opening of the 10th IMSH meeting, this blog is officially launched after 1 year of beta testing.  I see the bright future to utilize simulation technology to train next generation of healthcare providers and help facilitate the integration of human into complex healthcare delivery system.    Papers from David Gaba and Steve Small are really helpful for me to frame simulation practices  into a broader aspects of applications and potential impacts on patient care.

I listed collections of some groups, institutions focused on patient safety and simulations (welcome to suggest other groups to be added to the list).

I will attend the IMSH meeting until Wednesday. If you would like to chat in person, please tweet me @dongyue
