Platinum Sponsor CAE Healthcare has 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 supports innovation by the Sim Tech community! Last year, eight Sim Techs submitted their “Do-It-Yourself” Video Projects which were voted on by SimGHOSTS leadership and the 2012 event attendees. Fritz Sticht walked away with an iPad 3 as the Grand Prize winner! The event was so successful we are repeating it again for 2013 event attendees.
What is your best “DIY” project which has increased simulation lab realism or efficiency? Up to $1000 in prizes are being offered this year!
Laerdal continues to expand 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 will be presenting TeamSTEPPS: Empowering Simulation Technology Specialists to provide SimGHOSTS with new communication tools to utilize with their programs. 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!
