SimGHOSTS / ASPiH 2016: UK [SG-ASPiH16]

London England

Jul 18 - 20, 2016

Who should attend SimGHOSTS / ASPiH 2016 UK?

Anyone responsible for the technical operation of a medical simulation lab including full-time or part-time Sim Techs or clinical educators tasked with operating the day-to-day of simulation spaces. As well, anyone evaluating medical-simulation based technology should strongly consider attending as leading industry vendors attend. Other meetings are better suited for clinical educators specifically looking to learn how to teach with medical simulation. Administrators of simulation programs should also consider sending their institution's AV and IT related staff members who are responsible for supporting the simulation program. In our most recent events, staff from AV and IT departments outside of the healthcare simulation program found immense benefit from participating in SimGHOSTS to better understand the needs of their institution's simulation program!
SimGHOSTS Event Objectives:
• Meet with other Simulation Champions and share best practices
• Network and build long term industry relationships with peers and vendors

Gayle Mackie

Simtech At Glasgow Caledonian University & Secretary at SCSN, Scottish Clinical Skills Network / GCU

Bio: Working as a technician in GCU's school of health since 1998, I have wide range of skills and knowledge of supporting staff and healthcare students in higher education. I specialise in supporting high fidelity simulation for nursing, ODP and allied health undergraduate courses. My post grad qualification in Supporting Student Learning gained in 2014 has really deepened my understanding of the best methods of support, and more importantly, why they work. As well as being technician at GCU, I am secretary and also national tech rep for the Scottish Clinical Skills Network. If you want to know more about SCSN or are considering individual or institutional membership, please do get in touch on here, by email, or in person at the conference. I'm also one of the two ASPiH regional tech champions for Scotland, so again, any more info on that, do get in touch with me or my colleague, Scott Rudnicki Bayne. I'm always fairly active on twitter as @TheSimTechy, or on our regional @ScotSimTech account, so if you are a clinical skills or simulation related tweeter, give me a follow and I'll return the favour.
