Welcome to the ASPiH website, designed to keep our simulation community up to date with the latest news and developments.

During these challenging times, we are aware that great work undertaken by the simulation technician community has assisted or helped lead alternative ways to support delivery of simulation-based education and training in many different settings.

We are seeing adaptation and innovation everywhere, but we need to identify and understand what works best, what has failed, and what has been learned over this period.

So, the plan is to work together; sharing learning, celebrating achievements and capturing the detail, so that cohesion and consistency can be delivered for the benefit of both faculty members and learners alike.

Simulation Special Interest Group (SIG) Next Session - 18th May 2022 @ 7pm

ASPiH Executive SIG Leads: Sharon M Weldon; Andy Buttery

We define Transformative Simulation as:

“A tool to transform health & care through collective understanding, insight and learning.”

Are you frustrated by delivering or wanting to deliver innovative simulation but are hampered in being unable to find a formal, conventional structure to describe, design and evaluate it?

Transformative Simulation could be the solution, the objective of this SIG is to contribute to making it so.
