Thankyou for joining us at the NZASH 2016 Conference and Annual General Meeting in the vibrant city of Wellington!

The tremendous amount of hard work organising NZASH 2016 paid off as our attendees were treated to a fantastic program of 3 key note addresses, 17 abstract presentations and 8 varied workshops. 

Chair of NZASH, Dr Graham Knottenbelt, opened the meeting by expanding on the conference theme "Reaching Out" and the need for simulation in healthcare to expand beyond the tertiary health centres, universities and clinical skills suites. "Gone is requirement for simulation to be done exclusively by simulation experts and in dedicated simulation units. We need to be reaching out to those who may occasionally use simulation tools as part of regular clinical teaching; to managers implementing policy changes or involved with planning service delivery; to the smaller centres that may need help developing a simulation program of their own; and to the developing world where healthcare resource is limited and clinical education a challenge."

Our three key note speakers were undoubtedly highlights of the program: Assoc Professor Traci  Wolbrink from Harvard Medical School tempted us with the possibilities of what can be achieved with innovative medical education technologies to increase simulation to a global audience; Associate Professor Jenny Weller from University of Auckland described the exciting MORSim project being rolled out in hospitals throughout New Zealand over the next five years; and Professor Jean Ker who founded and heads the Scottish Clinical Skills Network described a strategy and ability for rural areas to be given the same opportunities to benefit from simulation in healthcare as the larger centres. 

Congratulations to John Dean and Stephanie Barwick on receiving prizes for abstract presentations 'Using Hybrid Simulated Patients: Investigting their use in teaching undergraduate medical students to integrate cultural and clinical competence' and 'Point of Care Recognition of deteriorating patient simulations: A workforce training initiative enhancing consumer partnerships'.

The NZASH conference closed with the session "Reaching out to the Developing World" where Brenda Knowles, Trish Wood, Jean Ker, Dean Henderson and our special guest from Samoa, Dr Lamour Hansell, each described their experiences and the opportunities for simulation to reach out and benefit healthcare education in areas resources are challenging.

We thank everyone who contributed to making NZASH 2016 a success. What a great privilage it was to share knowledge, gain inspiration and build relationships within our heathcare simulation community!

MorSim

MORSim (Multidisciplinary Operating Room Simulation) is a national team training intervention programme for surgical teams.

The goal is to improve the safety and efficiency of care for patients.

The program is funded by ACC, delivered by the University of Auckland, and supported by the Health Quality and Safety Commission.

 The NZASH Conference is a great opportunity to share knowledge and build relationships within the simulation community. If you want to learn more about simulation, see what others are doing, share your knowledge and expertise, or just want to see if simulation is right for you, we welcome you to join us in our biannual programme of presentations, discussion and workshops!
We look forward to you joining us at the next NZASH Conference on 12-13 October 2018 in Waitekere!

Following negotiations by NZASH with Health Workforce Australia and AASH, NZ simulation providers are now able to be part of this initiative to link the simulation community. Exec member John Dean has volunteered as liaison officer for this project. The next step will be identifying as many simulation providers as possible in NZ and inviting them to submit contact and other details for the Simnet site.
