WISER hosts portion of Safar Symposium

WISER hosted the second day of the 11th Annual Safar Symposium on Friday May 17th, 2013.  This was the first time that the simulation portion of the program was held on a separate day.   The focus of this year's simulation portion of the Safar Symposium was MILITARY MEDICINE AND TRAUMA SIMULATION.  Leaders in trauma training from around the country spoke about implementing simulation into trauma training as well as the need for training in military medicine. The morning started off with WISER Director Paul Phrampus, MD giving a brief introduction on the morning's topics.  Presenters for the morning session included:

  • Rebecca C. Britt, MD, FACS, from EVMS/Sentara Center for Surgical Education and Eastern Virginia Medical School.  Dr. Britt spoke about : "Trauma Training 2013 - The Role of Simulation"
  • Carl Schulman, MD, PhD, MSPH, FACS, from the William Lehman Injury research Center and DeWitt Daughtry Family Department of Surgery spoke on the topic of: "MobileCARE and Trauma Education: A New Era in Mobile Learning"
  •  John L. Falcone, MD, MS, from the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center spoke about : "Trauma Resuscitation Team Leaders: Institutional Experience of Simulation Based Team Leadership Training"
  • J. Harvey Magee from Telemedicine and Advanced Technology Research Center (TARRC) spoke on the topic of: "Medical Simulation Research and its Potential to Improve Trauma Training"
  • Robert F. Buckman Jr., MD, FACS from Operative Experience, Inc. (OEI) spoke on the topic called: "The Real Cutting Edge"

WISER also provided a free live webcast and an online chat interface so individuals who were unable to attend could contribute feedback during the question and answer session after each presentation.

WISER would like to thank the presenters for their knowledge and insight into the evolving world of simulation.
