SimHealth & SimTecT 2014 | Simulated Learning Environments | Scoop.it

"Join us in August 2014 to share, inform, experience and explore simulation in research, education and technology innovation in health and other industries"

Nicole Jones de Rooy's insight:

A highlight from this weeks conference for me was the session on "Do we need a Simulation Policy?"  Yes - I think we do, even if is as simple as the open policy that A/Prof Watson mentioned from the Mater in Brisbane which states that you will employ simulation in your unit/department.   Leaving it up to the units/departments themselves - the work out the other variables.  We need to get out of the mindset that simulation in health is only used in training. It is high-time that simulation was common place to support the decisions in patient flow, clinical placements and workforce projections.

Alex Wade's curator insight, July 2, 1:00 AM

What is interesting here is the future possibility of integrating robots into surgery, which has long been the dream of Ridley Scott and peers, but not realised in reality. 


The cues taken here can be seen from the aviation industry.  For all of their training, reflexes and ability, pilots in modern aircraft are more faciliators, or supervisors of technology: an integral part of a system to ensure safety and compliance.  We're a long way from that here, but perhaps with this research project at Cardiff University, we're one step closer to surgical automation/augmentation.

Data-Driven Simulation Model Helps Predict Hospital ED Interventions

A new study finds that emergency department and hospital managers could test potential improvements in patient flow by using data-driven simulation models. The researchers tested such models on academic and average hospital EDs.  BMC Medical Informatics and Decision Making.

Nicole Jones de Rooy's insight:

We must use decision support systems and personal trained in its use and methodology to un-weave these complex environments.  The day of the project officer using pen and paper are long gone.
