Simulation Center and SIM-ND staff members are back from the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare 2018 (IMSH) where they gave a series of presentations to an often full house. The conference, the largest gathering of professionals connected to medical simulation in the world, was held Jan. 13-17 in Los Angeles, Calif.

Presentations from SMHS Simulation Center staff at this year’s IMSH conference (“Making the Impossible Possible”) included:

  • Tim Shea, Simulation Coordinator, and Jamie Hamilton, Simulation Technician: “Build it Yourself! Low-cost Task Trainers (pre-conference course)
  • Jamie Hamilton & Tim Shea: “Basic Anatomy and Medical Interventions for the Simulation Operations Specialist”
  • Tim Shea: “Spectrum of Ideas Showcase with Massive Vomiting Airway Trainer”
  • Amy Malheim, SIM-ND Program Director: “Mobile Education: Simulation in Motion”
  • Missy Misialek, SIM-ND Sanford Coordinator (2 presentations): “New Workflows and Wayfinding: Using Sim for Orientation to a New Hospital” and “Latent Safety Threats: Findings in a New Hospital”

Jamie, Tim, and Amy are all “CHSOS” certified, meaning they have met the rigorous Society for Simulation in Healthcare requirements and passed the certifying exam to become Certified Healthcare Simulation Operations Specialists.

Congratulations on each of the presenters, who continue to help the UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences Simulation Center be regarded as one of the leading medical simulation centers in the nation.
