In 2008, participants in the Consensus Meeting in Toronto identified areas of priority in simulation. The following working groups were created to actively address these areas:
Build the Network – Building relationships with and connecting Canadian simulation stakeholders, as well as fine-tuning the Simulation Centre Registry and Community of Practice service offerings
Non-Technical Skills – Examining simulation techniques and tools to determine their use in teaching and enhancing non-technical skills
Programs for Educational Development – Building on existing knowledge to enhance effective and appropriate use of simulation education, and identifying and building a repository of Canadian best practice
Simulation Guidelines – Building on existing knowledge to develop and promote standards in patient simulation that can be used to support accreditation, program development, and research
Membership in these working groups is open. Each group meets approximately every month via teleconference. Face-to-face meetings are scheduled ad hoc and when schedules permit.
