Welcome to NZASH.
Simulation-Based Learning is ever more popular as a teaching resource and nowhere more than Healthcare. We the Executive continue to explore -how NZASH can support members, and allow members to continue to develop, adding value to healthcare simulation-based learning in New Zealand.
The Executive continues to build networks with regional interest groups and maintain links with International Organisations, such as ISSH and SimGhost to name but two. We continue to develop and update the website and have included areas for the sharing of resources and increasing NZASH profile of social media.
With the worldwide pressures of Covid-19 in 2020, the executive made the decision to cancel the planned conference and instead elected to facilitate a webinar in November 2020. The experience was so positive for both the organisers and members that we are developing ideas to host webinar events more regularly, whilst still maintaining our bi-annual conference, which will take place in 2022.
As elected chair from November 2020, my commitment for the following 12 months is to concentrate on building a stronger NZASH for our members, making sure we have the strength, commitment and support to sustain us as an Association.
To support my commitment, I intend to ask members their views of NZASH and what they want to see in the future. we have not conducted a membership survey since 2017 and with the different ways of working it feels time to re-evaluate.
For us to succeed as an Association we need your support and membership
