“An increasing number of professionals in the healthcare industry are waking up to simulation’s ability to help individuals and organizations improve patient care… we want to celebrate both that increased role and all healthcare simulation professionals this week.”

From September 16  through September 20, 2019, CAE Healthcare will join the healthcare and simulation communities (along with the public-at-large), in embracing an annual opportunity to heighten awareness of the immense potential and power that simulation-based training has to improve the delivery of healthcare, build and strengthen clinical competency, and minimize patient risk.  


Healthcare Simulation Week 2019 (the third such global event of its kind), is sponsored by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. Established in 2004, the Society has dedicated itself to the global enhancement of healthcare by fostering “the improvement and application of simulation-based modalities such as human patient simulators, virtual reality, Standardized Patients and task trainers for all healthcare disciplines.”
