Dr. Paul Phrampus, Director of WISER served as one of the three planning committee co-chairs along with Bonnie Driggers and Peter Dieckmann for the International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare January 22-26, 2011 in New Orleans, Louisiana. This year, the theme chosen by the planning committee for IMSH was "Simulation, Improv and All That Jazz" which complements both the setting in New Orleans as well as the dynamic, innovative nature of simulation.
As one of the meeting co-chairs, Dr. Phrampus was involved in all aspects of planning the meeting. The planning committee met weekly via conference call beginning in January 2010 through the meeting in January 2011 to discuss topics such as educational content, research content, and keynote speakers.
In addition to his work with planning the meeting, Dr. Phrampus also presented on the following topics at the meeting:

-Pre-Conference Course: Structured Debriefing: Scalable, Teachable and Testable

-Pre-Conference Course:
Leadership in Simulation - Getting Your Administrators and Other Leaders on Board

-Meet the SimPro's: Simulation for the Masses: Ensuring Quality/Technical Capacity in High Volume Situations

-Workshop: How to Get Your Abstract/Session Accepted for IMSH

-Podium Presentation: Clinicians are From Mars and Administrators are From Venus: Bridging the Communications Divide to Gain Support for Your Simulation Program
The meeting this year broke records for numbers of attendees, faculty, exhibitors and number of educational sessions offered. Congratulations to Dr. Phrampus for his efforts in assisting with the planning of this successful meeting!
