Meeting: Simulation Special Interest Group (SIG) Auckland Region
You are invited to the inaugural Simulation Interest Group for the Auckland Region. This is an opportunity to network and share ideas. The intention is to gauge the interest in gatherings, how to structure these and how often.
Please RSVP to one of your regional NZASH liaison team below or contact them for more details.
We look forward to seeing you. Please invite or share the email with anyone you know with a simulation interest.
Saturday, 28 October 2017 1.00pm – 3.00pm
Auckland City Hospital Support Building, 2 Park Road, Grafton, Auckland, University of Auckland, Level 12, Graeme Hill Lecture Room, Room 12.080
We have two Auckland and Northland Regional NZASH Liaisons:
We plan to establish a regional Simulation Interest Group within Auckland that will help coordinate activities, rationalise resources and increase collaboration within simulation users. We would love you to get in touch and know what activities you are involved with.
Hello! I am the programme manager for a national simulation programme MORSim (Multidisciplinary Operating Room Simulation) I also have a background as an nurse and anaesthetic technician. The MORSim programme is being offered to all DHBs across the country and focuses on patient safety in the operating rooms and whole team training. I have been involved for a number of years with simulation training and research in New Zealand and in the Middle East. Most of my work has involved innovative, multidisciplinary team training in the healthcare setting.
While our team don’t have a simulation department, we have the pleasure of meeting and working with simulation enthusiasts across the country. I look forward to representing the Auckland Region as the links/coordinators.

I am an Emergency Medicine Specialist at Auckland City Hospital Adult Emergency Department. I hold the Simulation portfolio for our department and lead the AED Auckland Hospital Simulation Team (AED AuHSim Team). We run in situ Simulation Training for all staff in our department, interdepartmental simulation exercises and are involved in research and quality improvement projects. I have been involved in Simulation Training for the past 4 years and this year our department has added a Training position for a Simulation Fellow, who I supervise. This post is currently provisionally accredited by the Australasian College of Emergency Medicine (ACEM).
Simulation Training in our department maintains teamwork, staff education, quality improvement and exposes latent threats. I am privileged to work with amazing people everyday who are committed to their patients and have a true desire to improve health care. I believe Simulation Training plays an important role in achieving this goal.
