2021 Simulation Summit

The Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada are thrilled to share their plans and programming for the upcoming 2021 Simulation Summit, taking place virtually this November 4-5, 2021.
 
The annual Simulation Summit is a unique and practical interprofessional medical simulation education conference, which attracts hundreds of international simulation educators, researchers, health care professionals and other individuals engaged in the field of simulation.
 
This year’s conference program explores the theme, The Future is Now!, through thought-provoking plenary sessions led by simulation leaders and researchers, including Dr. Victoria Brazil discussing translational simulation, Drs. Walter Tavares and Matt Lineberry covering assessment in simulation, and Drs. David Williams and Tanja Manser offering new perspectives on building successful high-performance teams.

New virtual technology allows participants to connect with a diverse group of educators, experts and learners from all over the world. A virtual poster hall invites participants to explore the posters, watch pre-recorded presentations, and even book meeting times with poster presenters.
 
For those unable to participate live, all content will be recorded and accessible through the virtual platform three weeks post-event so participants can watch any missed events at their own pace and leisure. The added bonus in a virtual world, is that you don’t have to miss anything when sessions run concurrently!
 
The conference provides an incredible professional development opportunity for simulation educators, physicians, nurses, and health professional educators with an interest in simulation; the ability to learn and train alongside researchers and health care professionals from different institutions and disciplines is what makes Simulation Summit so valuable.
 
The knowledge translation involved in the programming gives participants practical tools, insights and ideas to apply to their own simulation practice. In action, they have the potential to significantly advance quality in health and patient care.
