Platinum Sponsor CAE Healthcare sponsored the SimGHOSTS 2013 Opening Reception Dinner Tuesday evening August 6th, with a BBQ dinner and live-band at the famous Little Red Barn Steakhouse!
B-Line Medical continued to support innovation by the Sim Tech community! This year three Sim Techs submitted their “Do-It-Yourself” Video Projects, which were voted on by SimGHOSTS leadership and the 2013 event attendees. Grand Prize winner Mark Johanneck from UW Health Clinical Simulation Program won for his video project on “Re-purposing Used ATLS Training Skins“ – and he walked away with an iPad mini!

Laerdal continued their support of SimGHOSTS by sponsoring the 2013 Keynote Address by simulation thought-leader Timothy Clapper, PhD. With a background in education and technology, Timothy presented TeamSTEPPS: Empowering Simulation Technology Specialists to provide SimGHOSTS with new communication tools to utilize with their programs. About the course:
Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety (TeamSTEPPS) is a powerful, evidenced-based teamwork and communication tool that can make a difference for Sim Lab operations. Timothy will provide an overview of TeamSTEPPS, followed by engaging, audience-participatory, team-based clinical demonstrations, which will generate the buy-in and conﬁdence needed to begin the TeamSTEPPS curriculum integration process.

The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists (or SimGHOSTS) is an annual meeting and online resource website to provide the growing number of Sim Techs from around the world with the hands-on training and knowledge they need to successfully operate and maintain medical simulation labs. Learn about the success of previous Sim Tech Gathering conferences as well as the numerous benefits of subscribing to SimGhosts.Org! Watch the video response from some of the 156 Sim Techs who attended!
Now in our third year, The Gathering of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists (or SimGHOSTS for short) Organization and annual meeting were created to provide technology specialists within the healthcare simulation field with a community dedicated to developing and sharing resources, knowledge, training and standards for fostering excellence in the operation of healthcare simulation. We feel that Sim Techs are the primary operators or ‘end-users’ of simulation based technology and are quickly becoming the defacto program representatives regarding all future simulation-related technology purchases. So, check out the free resources on our website, consider joining us for more exclusive content online or in-person during our annual hands-on training event!
