One of the uniquely valuable (and sometimes overlooked) aspects of healthcare simulation is the opportunity it affords to deepen non-technical skills acquisition through experiential learning.

When conducted and proctored within a safe, yet realistic training environment, simulation has the power to

  1. build and strengthen intraprofessional and interprofessional communication

  2. improve baseline clinical performance and reduce the incidence of meaningful complications

  3. sharpen error recognition skills that ultimately enhance patient safety

Didactic teaching alone cannot accomplish this level of learning. Deliberate practice, combined with risk-free simulation-based healthcare training has been shown to contribute significantly, and directly, to the acquisition of clinical skills that lead to better patient outcomes.

CAE HPSN World 2019 (February 26-28 in Orlando, Florida) is the ideal occasion to learn best practices during expert-led presentations, live-action demonstrations and immersive healthcare training sessions.

The Human Patient Simulation Network (HPSN) consists of clinical educators at colleges, technical centers, universities, and hospitals as well as nurses, physicians, EMS responders, medics, sonographers, respiratory therapists, students and sim center directors.

Over the past twenty years, more than 11,000 attendees have taken part in Human Patient Simulation Network events globally. In 2019, you can join this group. 

If you're concerned about improving patient safety and want to advance best practices in patient simulation training, then you must join this global simulation community at  HPSN World 2019 in Orlando, Florida  for three days of interactive healthcare simulation training, symposia and networking.  


Here’s what you get by coming to HPSN World 2019:

  • Valuable, relevant (and FREE) healthcare training courses where you can earn continuing education units (CEUs)

  • Stimulating keynotes and presentations from world leaders in healthcare, medicine, and education 

  • First-hand exposure to new training technologies and exciting developments in simulation-based learning

  •  Tremendous opportunities to interact with clinicians, researchers and education experts from across the spectrum of medical, nursing, rapid response and allied health

To Err is Human: A Patient Safety  Documentary
CAE Healthcare is sponsoring a special screening of "To Err is Human" at CAE HPSN World 2019. (View the official trailer here)

Important and compelling, this documentary is an in-depth account of the human impact of preventable medical errors, the people working diligently to raise awareness about this epidemic and the imperative to create "a new age of patient safety" positing healthcare simulation as part of the solution.  

An interactive panel discussion, featuring the filmmakers, patient safety advocates, and healthcare experts, is also scheduled after the showing.
