Welcome to ASPiH

The website is designed to keep our simulation community up to date with the latest news and developments.

Let us work together; share learning, celebrate achievements and capture the detail, so that cohesion and consistency can be delivered for the benefit of both faculty members and learners alike.

ASPiH Conference 2023!

This year’s conference theme was selected to help all of us focus on becoming more mindful of how we develop, use and succession plan within our healthcare simulation services.
We focused on sustainability to help support quality in simulation activity that enhances patient and team safety. This means we need to think about how we undertake service and learning needs analyses, how we plan our training and how invest in our resources including staff, patients and colleagues, networking and educational equipment and software. And how we build our knowledge base, through the use of simulation as a research tool.
Colette Laws-Chapman,  President

There are a series of events available to members. Check out our events calendar and RSVP online! All events are free for our members.


Improving Quality through Simulation

This framework is the product of a collaboration between Health Education and Improvement Wales (HEIW), the Association for Simulated Practice in Healthcare (ASPiH) and the Society for Simulation in Europe (SESAM).

It is a novel step-by-step guide to the collaborative design of simulation-based interventions to improve patient safety, including who to engage and how to incorporate best practice. It also signposts to guidance for intervention evaluation and further information through links embedded in the text.

It aims to be useful to anybody in the health and care community that wishes to be involved in developing a simulation response following an event or, more widely, improvement through the use of simulation.

Improving quality through simulation, a quality improvement based framework to guide simulation interventions following key events in healthcare.

Diaz-Navarro C, Jones B, Pugh G, Moneypenny M, Lazarovici M and Grant D, March 2023.
