Waiting in anticipation -
An increase in ASPiH membership fees will be announced very soon - however it will bring additional benefits!
It is planned for the new membership fees and accreditation to run in parallel – current individual and institutional membership includes the option to submit an application for ASPiH accreditation with no additional cost. Alternatively, non-ASPiH members considering applying for accreditation must commit and pay for membership for the length of the 3-year accreditation cycle.

Simulation-based education (SBE) has matured into a formally recognised teaching method embedded in all healthcare training programmes. It is therefore important that standards of delivery of SBE are defined and described in a document that can be readily applied in different organisational contexts. Throughout 2015 and 2016, ASPiH consulted widely and developed the standards framework for simulation-based education in the UK. ASPiH is now in the early stages of providing an accreditation scheme that individuals, programme leads and organisations can apply to demonstrate that they are delivering high quality simulation-based education that will benefit patient care in clinical practice.
