Welcome Letter

IPSSW2015 – Reaching Out to the Future

Dear IPSS Members, colleagues and friends,

The International Pediatric Simulation Society (IPSS) and the IPSSW2015 Organizing Committee are pleased to announce the 7th International Pediatric Simulation Symposia and Workshops (IPSSW) in Vancouver, Canada, 4-6 May 2015.

Building on a wonderful meeting in Vienna in 2014, IPSSW is looking forward to its second trip to North America – this time in the breath-taking city of Vancouver, Canada. The conference will be held at the Westin Bayshore, right on the waterfront, with stunning views of Vancouver Harbour and the mountains beyond, and close to the legendary Stanley Park.

“IPSSW2015 – Reaching Out to the Future” recognizes and encompasses a number of developments in the continued evolution of pediatric simulation. Firstly, the continued expansion of simulation across the globe including to resource-poor contexts and the formation of international collaboratives has us “reaching-out” as a community. Secondly, Outreach simulation, where the centre-based silos are broken down and simulation is delivered in community-based settings, is another manifestation of our simulation enthusiasts reaching-out. Finally pediatric simulation is at the forefront of the trail being blazed into the future in terms of a paradigm shift in education and high-stakes assessment.

IPSSW2015 will bring these themes together in an exciting and stimulating program. In response to positive feedback from previous meetings, we are pleased to have included speakers from a range of industries with important in-sights applicable to our practice. The format of the program components have been refined to facilitate smooth flow between sessions with adequate time devoted to those aspects that you’ve identified as key.

IPSSW continues to represent the world’s largest gathering devoted exclusively to pediatric and perinatal simulation – popular for advancing its practice and network in a friendly and collegial atmosphere. A diverse group of individuals attend with a shared interest in improving pediatric healthcare through simulation.

We are very excited to be inviting you to IPSSW2015 in Vancouver – we very much hope to see you there!

Warm regards,

Tobias EverettDr. Tobias Everett

Vice-Chair – Bristol Medical Simulation Centre (BMSC), UK

Clinically, Andrew is a consultant anesthetist with sub-specialty expertise in anesthesia for upper gastrointestinal surgery, endocrine surgery, ophthalmic surgery, and special needs patients. Bristol was the first simulation center to be opened in the UK. As a Director of BMSC, Andrew has 15 years experience of developing local, national and international multidisciplinary teaching programs.

Andrew has been an examiner for the Primary Fellowship examination of the Royal College of Anaesthetists since 2006, and is deputy chair of the OSCE (Objective Structured Clinical Examination).

Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Anesthesiology and Critical Care
Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, US

Dr. Shilkofski is an Assistant Professor of Pediatrics, Anesthesiology and Critical Care at Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, Maryland, US. She received her medical degree from Tulane University School of Medicine and trained in pediatrics and pediatric critical care at Johns Hopkins. She received her Master in Medical Education at the University of Cincinnati.

Nicole was the Vice Dean for Education at Perdana University Graduate School of Medicine in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, from 2011 to August 2014, as well as the Associate Director of the Simulation Center at Johns Hopkins from 2008-2011. At both institutions, she ran the standardized patient programs and many of the mannequin based simulation education programs for medical students, nursing students and resident/fellow trainees. As a pediatric intensivist, Nicole’s research interests have been in the use of simulation to teach pediatric resuscitation, particularly in resource-limited settings and developing countries. She has used simulation as a tool to study the impact of culture and language on team dynamics and patient safety during simulated emergency situations in over 15 countries in Africa, Asia and South America. Her grant -funded initiatives include simulation programs in Myanmar, Malaysia, Philippines and Uganda to target reductions in neonatal and pediatric morbidity and mortality.

She has served on US National Institute of Health (NIH) panels for the Agency for Healthcare Research Quality (AHRQ) in the area of simulation in patient safety and has authored several book chapters and multiple journal articles within the field of simulation based medical education.

For her hard work, she has received the Canadian Medical Association award for excellence in mentorship; the May Cohen award and a similar award from the U of T with the Department of Medicine; the Bob Hyland award. This year she also received the U of T Helen P. Batty Award for Excellence and Achievement in Faculty Development for Sustained Contribution to the field.


Dr. Jim Fehr

Since 1998 Dr. Jim Fehr has worked at Washington University in St. Louis where his clinical practice centers on pediatric cardiac anesthesia and critical care. As medical director of the Saigh Pediatric Simulation Center at St. Louis Children’s Hospital since 2008, he has had an active role in the creation, development and expansion of the simulation center. This hospital-based center provides pediatric focused simulation for individual and interdisciplinary educational programs serving over 4000 participants annually. The research produced from this center builds on the work of Murray & Boulet in simulation-based assessment of individual and team performance. He has also directed the simulation sessions for the Pediatric Sedation Outside of the Operating Room conferences and was recently been elected to the Board of Directors of the Society for Pediatric Anesthesiology.
