WISER to host afternoon session of SAFAR Symposium

WISER is pleased to announce that the Eighth Annual SAFAR symposium will be held on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh on June 2, 2010. The afternoon session of the symposium will be simulation based as in years passed and will be held at WISER. The symposium is free to all, but prior registration is required for this event. If you would like to register for the afternoon session of the symposium, please contact Fran Mistrick (mistrickfh@anes.upmc.edu) by May 14th, 2010.

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"

Michael Seropian, MD, Oregon Health and Science University-"A Roadmap of Simulation Toward the Future"

The symposium is FREE! To view and/or participate in the web cast please go to www.wiser.pitt.edu where a live link will be posted under the events column. That's it, it's just that easy!
