Why Present at SIM Expo?

As a hybrid of academic conference and innovation expo, we are calling for abstracts on emerging scientific research into simulation-based education, presentations on innovative uses of simulation, and interactive demonstrations. Every year, participants learn from each other and bring new skills, ideas and tools back to their own simulation work.

The Expo provides an excellent forum to disseminate research findings to front-line simulationists, forge new collaborations, share knowledge, and demonstrate your exciting new simulation scenarios, programs and achievements.

Pourquoi présenter au SIM Expo?

SIM Expo est une conférence unique qui combine un colloque scientifique, un événement de réseautage et un salon professionnel. Nous demandons des résumés sur la recherche scientifique émergente en matière de formation par simulation, des présentations sur les utilisations innovantes de la simulation et des démonstrations interactives. Chaque année, les participants apprennent les uns des autres et apportent de nouvelles compétences, idées et outils à leur propre travail de simulation.

SIM Expo constitue un excellent forum pour la diffusion des résultats de recherche en simulation, la création de nouvelles collaborations, le partage de connaissances et la démonstration de vos excitants nouveaux scénarios, programmes et réalisations en simulation.

What can you expect?

Expo participants tell us that what they appreciate most are the opportunities to learn and to connect with others - so we plan the program to include as much learning and networking as possible! You can expect:

  • 4 World-class keynote speakers
  • 14 Live demonstrations of innovative sim scenarios, curricula, tools, VR, AR and serious games
  • 20 Presentations of emerging research findings and best practices
  • 15 Practical, engaging workshops
  • 31 Posters summarizing research, innovations and impact
  • Structured networking and community of practice gatherings
  • Exhibits from leading simulation vendors
  • A few surprises!

À quoi vous attendre ?

Les participants à la SIM Expo apprécient les occasions offertes qui permettent d’apprendre et d’établir des liens avec les autres acteurs du milieu de la simulation. Nous planifierons donc un programme en ce sens qui inclut des activités d’apprentissage, mais aussi de réseautage. Vous pouvez vous attendre à :

  • 4 conférenciers de classe internationale
  • 14 démonstrations en direct de scénarios de simulations innovants, de programmes d’études, d’outils, de réalité virtuelle, de réalité augmentée, et de jeux sérieux
  • 20 présentations de résultats de recherche émergents et de meilleures pratiques
  • 15 ateliers pratiques et interactifs
  • 31 affiches résumant la recherche, les innovations et l'impact
  • Du réseautage structuré et des réunions de communautés de pratique
  • Des exposants comptant les grands fournisseurs de simulation
  • Quelques surprises !

Building the Bridge: The First Steps to Creating a Psychologically and Culturally Safe Simulation

Nicole Harder RN, PhD, CHSE, CCSNE

Interprofessional SIM champion & psychological safety researcher

Défenseur interprofessionnel de la simulation et chercheure de la sécurité psychologique

At the University of Manitoba, Dr. Harder's interprofessional position includes simulation-based education and research for the Colleges of Dentistry, Medicine, Medical Rehabilitation, Nursing and Pharmacy. Her current work is creating, implementing, and studying the use of a psychologically safe debriefing framework following expected and unexpected patient death in simulation and clinical experiences with health care students and practitioners. Dr. Harder is the Editor-in-Chief for the peer reviewed journal Clinical Simulation in Nursing, and serves on the Board of Directors for the International Nursing Association for Clinical Simulation and Learning, and with Simulation Canada. She is also an educator for the Canadian Association for Schools of Nursing in the Simulation Nurse Educator certificate program.

Easy to say but hard to do: Establishing and maintaining psychological safety in simulation and debriefing

Jenny Rudolph PhD

Debriefer with good judgment & world-leading researcher

Débriefeur de bon jugement et chef de file mondial de la recherche

Dr. Rudolph is a life-long athlete who brings the joy of practice to learning in healthcare education, especially feedback, debriefing, and collaboration at point of care. Jenny is an organization behavior scholar on the faculty of Massachusetts General Hospital Department of Anesthesia Critical Care and Pain Medicine, and department of Anesthesia at Harvard Medical School. The approach to reflective conversations known as “debriefing with good judgment” that Jenny pioneered has helped health educators world-wide promote dynamic, honest, but non-threatening conversations. The “…with good judgment approach” pairs three key dichotomies to promote connection and learning: psychological safety and challenge in the learning environment; holding high standards and high regard for learners; and balancing advocacy and inquiry to share and elicit thought processes. Dr. Rudolph studied system dynamics at MIT Sloan School of Management, received a doctorate in organizational behavior from Boston College, was a National Science Foundation Fellow, and received a B.A. in sociology from Harvard College.

Biigiiweyan: Simulation for Indigenous Cultural Safety

Patty Chabbert MA

Indigenous wellness advocate & researcher

Défenseur et chercheur en mieux-être indigène

Patty Chabbert, Algonquin from Kipawa and North Bay On, has a Master’s in Public Policy and Administration, with a focus on Indigenous health administration. Patty has extensive experience working with Indigenous organizations and communities as well as all levels of Government, non-profits and industry. She has worked in a variety of areas, including youth and community engagement, land-based STEAM and educational programs, Indigenous youth suicide, child welfare, Indigenous research methodologies and evaluation, urban Indigenous community development and services, housing and homelessness and much more. Patty’s current role is with the First Peoples Centre at Canadore College as the Manager of Indigenous and Business Relations.

Louise Moir RN BScN

Canadian simulationist extraordinaire

Simulatrice canadienne extraordinaire

Louise is the lead nursing simulation technologist at Canadore College and Nipissing University. During her nineteen-year career in nursing education, she has been actively involved in designing and implementing healthcare simulation, assisting with development of interprofessional education and co-creating the Simulated Participant Program at Canadore College. She was honoured to work with colleagues and Indigenous communities in creating an Indigenous Interprofessional Cultural Safety Training Program: Biigiiweyan. Through conversations with Indigenous community members and the teachings of the Medicine Wheel, Louise was able to create a narrative that would become the simulations for Biigiiweyan. Louise is the founder and co-organizer of the Northern Ontario Simulation Symposium which brings together healthcare professionals, simulationists and industry to network and learn from each other. Louise is a graduate of the Keystones of Healthcare Simulation and MASCS certificate programs and proud recipient of the first SIM Citizenship Award.
