Dan is off again to Hong Kong to spread the word on improving patient safety through simulation. This week he’s at the Asia Pacific Meeting on Simultion in Healthcare (APMSH). The APMSH is being held in Hong Kong from May 19 -22, 2011. It’s sponsored by the Socisty for Simulation in Healthcare and the Australian Society for Simulation in Healthcare in conjunction with their regional Asia Pacific partners. Dan’s keynote address is titled, “International Healthcare Simulation: A gourmet Tour of The Past Present and Future?” (more…)

Here at CMS we have our own version of the popular PBS show, “Where In The World Is Carmen Sandiego?” Our’s features longtime CMS faculty member Dan Raemer who we feel puts the popular globe trotting PBS character to shame in his quest to improve patient safety and medical education through the use of simulation. Since the beginning of this year Dan has been to New York to help teach an IMS Instructor Course; New Orleans for the IMSH Meeting where he helped teach several workshops and then on to Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane Australia and Hong Kong, China to help teach more CMS’ Simulation Instructor Courses. After coming back to the States for a short visit and change of clothes Dan headed back to Australia last month. While there he spent he spent five days at the Royal Melbourne Hospital giving a series of talks and workshops on teamwork, crisis management and speaking up to medical students and other healthcare professionals. He followed this up with a week long visiting professorship at the John Hunter Hospital in New Castle, Australia where he did workshops for the innovation and simulation departments on improvisiation, evaluation and strategy. Later this week Dan is flying to California where he’ll be giving the key note lecture at a the 1st Annual Loma Linda University Simulation Center Regional Simulation Conference. Two weeks later Dan will be travelling to back to Hong Kong to give the the keynote address at the Asia-Pacific Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (APMSH). In early June, Dan is heading to Granada Spain for the 17th Annual Meeting of the Society in Europe for Simulation Applied To Medicine (SESAM) where he’ll be leading a workshop on CMS’ Debriefing Assessment for Simulation in Healthcare (DASH). Right after SESAM, Dan will travel to Santander Spain where he’ll help teach CMS’ IMS/Europe Institute for Medical Simulation Instructor Course at the Hospital Virtual Valdecilla. Then it’s back to the States where Dan will be conducting a pre-conference workshop on Methods for Assessing Teamwork in Simulation at the 10th annual International Nursing Simulation/Learning Resource Centers Conference (INACSL) in Orlando, Florida.
CMS faculty members Robert Simon, Dan Raemer, Jenny Rudolph and Walter Eppich are in Australia to teach the IMS “Simulation As A Teaching Tool” and “Advanced Debriefing” Workshops to our simulation friends in the land of OZ. This is our third year conducting workshops in Australia and we never fail to be impressed by the knowledge, enthusiasm and dedication of Simulation Educators in this wonderful country. CMS has made many friends here and hopes to make these workshops an ongoing event.
After the Australia workshops, Robert, Dan and Walter will be doing something new this year. Instead of heading home they’ll travelling further west, or is that east, to Hong Kong where they’ll be conducting the “Simulation As A Teaching Tool” workshop for our friends at the Hong Kong Hospital Authority.
The dates for the 2011 workshops in Australia and Hong Kong are:
- Melbourne, Australia: February 14-17 Sponsored by Monash University
- Brisbane, Australia: February 21 – 24 Sponsored by the Queensland Skills Development Service
- Sydney, Australia: March 1-4 Sponsored by the Sydney Clinical Skills and Simulation Centre
- Hong Kong, SAR China: March 8 -12 Sponsored by the Hong Kong Hospital Authority
In June, Robert Simon will help teach the ”Simulation As A Teaching Tool” workshop at our IMS/Europe Affiliate, Hospital Virtual Valdecilla in Santander, Spain. The cost for this workshop is only $2,000 Euros and it will be conducted in English. Contact Ignacio delMoral at email@example.com for more information.
