Also, as a service to the simulation community we have once again arranged for a live web-cast of the afternoon sessions. The sessions will run from 2pm - 5:25pm (Eastern Time). You will also be able to communicate by chat functionality in real-time with the moderators of the afternoon lectures.
We have once again assembled a list of the who's who in simulation thought leaders to come to Pittsburgh and share their work and visions.
The simulation session speakers and their topics for this year include:
Paul Phrampus, MD, Director of WISER - "The History of Simulation in CPR Training"
John Vozenilek, MD, Northwestern University - "An In Situ Simulation Program to Improve Neonatal Resuscitation and CPR"
James McGee, MD, University of Pittsburgh - "The Virtual Patient as an Instrument of Simulation"
John M. O'Donnell, DrPH, University of Pittsburgh - "Back Injury Prevention - An Evidence based approach to Simulation Implementation"
Connie Lopez, RNC, Kaiser Permanente- "Shoulder Dystocia – An Evidence Based Deployment of Simulation for Patient Safety"
