SimGHOSTS/ASPiH 2015 UK: Laerdal Medical Keynote Address - Laerdal Medical sponsored Dr. Amar Patel's Keynote Address titled "Transforming the Technician to the Technology: Our Future is Now" at the first annual SimGHOSTS/ASPiH UK event in Leeds.  Dr. Patel discussed the impact a technologist can have on simulation ROI and research, he outlined steps to transform a technician to a technologist, and he finished with a discussion of the future of simulation innovation and the role of the technologist.

SimGHOSTS 2015 AUS: CAE Healthcare/Mediquip Plenary Address - At SimGHOSTS 2015 Australia, CAE HEalthcare and Mediquip sponsored the Plenary Address by Dr Kenneth Gilpin BSc Mb ChB FRCA FANZCA, Senior Lecturer University of New England, Australia - who spoke on "Negative Learning in Healthcare SImulation". During the talk he argued that negative learning - which means that learners build unintended habits during simulation exercises which they carry over to real life engagements - is a problem in our community. Dr Gilpin demonstrated how the aviation industry regularly examines simulation training for negative learning   

SimGHOSTS 2015 AUS: Laerdal Medical Keynote Address - At SimGHOSTS 2015 Australia held at the Clinical Skills Development Service in Brisbane, Laerdal Sponsored Keynote speaker Dr. Carolyn Yucha, Dean of the Nursing Allied Health Programs at the University of Nevada Las Vegas, shared why healthcare educational administrators need to understand that hiring and keeping simulation technology staff is their #1 priority.

SimGHOSTS 2014 USA: Level 3 Healthcare Keynote AddressThanks to Level 3 Healthcare, SimGHOSTS President James Cypert presented on the importance of bringing in basic research methods in support of the professional development of Simulation Techs. He  began the conversation with a community focus and topics for future research and invite a networking dialog to establish collaboration opportunities for designing, conducting, collecting, writing, and submitting well-formed research. The goal of this the 2014 USA keynote address was to provide some of the basic tools, resources, and methods for providing evidence-based practice for simulation technologists, ascertaining cogent research topics, and identifying collaborative opportunities, and establishing working relationships to achieve higher levels of dialog from and with the technician community.
