[Events] SimforHealth is joining the European community of healthcare simulation – SESAM June 2017

14 June 2017

The purpose of SESAM, a society that was created 20 years ago, is to encourage and support the use of simulation in medical services for training and research. The SESAM conference, which on this occasion will bring together 800 visitors in Paris, is a key moment in the sector at the international level.
Even more importantly this year : SESAM is being co-organized with SofraSims.

SofraSims, the French Society for Simulation in Health, is bringing together 24 representatives from various medical and paramedical specialties and disciplines from across the French-speaking world. The main objective is to promote and more broadly highlight the use of simulation in all areas of healthcare, in particular for training and research, and the dissemination of recommendations for improving the quality and safety of care.

Many major players in the field will be attending throughout these 3 days dedicated entirely to simulation in healthcare.

This of course includes SoFraSims, which SimforHealth has worked with on several occasions. Its president, Professor JC. Granry, with the support of the Director of Angers University Hospital, has greatly contributed to developing our online library of clinical cases and the authoring tool MedicActiV.

SimGHOSTS, another important player at the conference, is an organization based in the USA dedicated to supporting individuals and institutions using medical simulation technology and is a partner of SESAM 2017. SimGHOSTS envisions a healthcare education culture where people are empowered to use simulation technology to improve learning and patient care outcomes.

Many other players in the sector will come together to discuss the future of healthcare via simulation.

SimforHealth, an expert in the field of digital simulation for healthcare training will be attending both as an exhibitor (Stand EX31) and as an invited speaker at two sessions:

 Thursday June 15 at 10:30, amphi Weiss – presentation of our abstract in the category “Expert Panel” – Medical education: scaling up international production and diffusion of virtual medical cases via the MedicActiv platform

To find us:
Our teams will be ready to greet you at Booth EX31 for discussions about MedicActiV and for you to discover the potential of this platform, which is available on a trial offer for 4 months, for creation, consultation and publishing.
Visitors to our space will also be able to try out clinical cases in virtual reality using an HTC Vive headset. Immersed in the heart of the action, you will discover how digital simulation can become a real asset for your initial or continuing training.
