Proceedings of the Saudi Health Simulation Conference 2018
We are pleased to publish the Proceedings of the Saudi Health Simulation Conference (SHSC) 2018. The Conference is an initiative of the Saudi Ministry of Health and the founding committee of the Saudi Simulation Society in Healthcare. For an overview of the supplement, read the Blog post by Debra Nestel & Hani Lababidi.
Advances in Simulation is the official journal of the Society in Europe for Simulation Applied to Medicine (SESAM).
SESAM was founded in 1994 in Copenhagen and aims to encourage and support the use of simulation in health care and medicine for the purpose of training and research. Key roles of SESAM are to develop and support the application of simulation in education, research, and quality management by facilitating collaborations and the exchange of technology and knowledge throughout Europe.
Advances in Simulation is delighted to announce a partnership with Simulcast, to produce a bi-monthly podcast featuring an article from the journal with an interview with the author, an editor or another discussant. The aim is to continue to connect the simulation community across geography, discipline and modality, and to help research to be translated to practice.
