About SimGHOSTS 2016: Australia

Now entering its sixth year, The Gathering Of Healthcare Simulation Technology Specialists 501(c)(3) organization will continue its Australia-based event to provide support to those operating healthcare simulation technologies around the world.

SimGHOSTS has continued to see increased attendance by the international community of Simulation Technology Specialists at the annual hands-on training events, which increased to four events in 2015. With a mission to connect the world’s growing population of simulation technology professionals together, the non profit organization’s leadership has continued to engage in relationship building with organizations inside and outside the United States. We are now affiliated with ASPiH, Simulation Australia, SSH, and IPSS. Our second annual Australia event hosted in 2015 by the Clinical Skills Development Service was a success which brought together over one hundred simulation champions from around the world.

Who Should Attend SimGHOSTS Events?

Anyone responsible for the technical operation of a medical simulation lab including full-time or part-time Sim Techs, or clinical educators tasked with operating the day-to- day of simulation spaces. As well, anyone evaluating medical-simulation based technology should strongly consider attending as most major industry vendors are encouraged to attend. Other meetings are better suited for clinical educators specifically looking to learn how to teach with medical simulation.

Administrators of simulation programs should also consider sending their institution's AV and IT related staff members who are responsible for supporting the simulation program. In our most recent events, staff from AV and IT departments outside of the healthcare simulation program found immense benefit from participating in SimGHOSTS to better understand the needs of their institution's simulation program!
