ASPiH Standards for Simulation-Based Education (SBE)

The Association for Simulated Practice in Healthcare (ASPiH) created the Standards for SBE to combine relevant best practice and published evidence in simulation-based education for all healthcare professionals with consideration of a number of existing quality assurance processes currently in use across the UK and around the world.

'The ASPiH Standards provide a strong backbone in the description and clarification of the required standards. I am happy to tell that again I found valuable help in your framework'

Helge Lorentzen -Director of Educational Strategy and Standards - SAFER - Stavanger Acute Medicine Foundation for Education and Research

Dear ASPiH Members and Stakeholders,

Your input is extremely valuable to us. Therefore, we would like to invite you and your colleagues to participate in our ASPiH Standards 2023 consultation process.

Membership and stakeholder engagement is essential to ensure that the ASPiH standards continue to be a valuable guide to best practice, useful and widely adopted across the simulation community. Therefore,the review process has included an iterative consultation exercise.

You can still contribute by completing this survey, which will close on 17th September.

The ASPiH Standards 2023 will be launched on 8th November, at the ASPiH Conference 2023. This will take place through a main stage session and an interactive symposium, offering an opportunity to discuss how ASPiH can support the implementation of the revised standards by individual simulation practitioners, across faculty groups and institutions as well as nationally across the UK and internationally. We invite all conference participants (whether they are ASPiH members or not) to join us in these sessions and contribute to the discussion.

With best wishes

The ASPiH Team
