SIMCore 2.0: Simulation as an Indispensable Clinical Service Partner and High Reliability Catalyst for Children's Hospitals
Peter Weinstock, MD, PhD - Boston Children's Hospital | Harvard Medical School
A practicing pediatric intensive care unit physician, Dr. Weinstock's passion has been to move the needle on healthcare by allowing medicine to increasingly follow suit with all other high stakes industries – namely, to embed regular, timely, ‘life like’, simulation-based rehearsal opportunities for staff, patients and families (i.e. “Practicing prior to game time”) to optimize safe, reliable care for all.

More recently, his team at Boston Children’s Hospital Simulator Program (SIMPeds) has taken SIM to the next level -- combining human factors with leading edge innovation in curriculum development, organizational learning, 3D print technologies, puppetry, theatre, and now 'Hollywood' special effects and virtual reality – to create a unique SIM-based Ecosystem applying SIM across four service lines to support the entire healthcare enterprise. With service lines now installed among leading teaching hospitals around the globe, SIMPeds is ever-tightening the link between timely practice and the delivery of high quality, safe care to improve the lives of infants and children no matter where care is delivered. Utilizing a mix of case-based discussion aided by video demonstration, all SIM service lines will be discussed, including applications and impact.
Education goals for this session:
- Identify the role of simulation-based life-like rehearsal in improving outcomes for clinicians, patient and families by reducing risk, fear and anxiety throughout the healthcare enterprise
- Understand the importance of adapting a “disruptive technology” approach to effective simulation program design and development
- Understand the role of adaptable simulation in addressing mission critical problems for the hospital resulting in cost-savings, cost-avoidance, and efficiency
- Understand the unique relationship between ready-made engineering and curricula development to create the most relevant and effective training opportunities (“Do the surgery, before the surgery”)

Cultural and Linguistic Competency
California Assembly Bill 1195 requires continuing medical education activities with patient care components to include curriculum in the subjects of cultural and linguistic competency. The planners and speakers of this CME activity have been encouraged to address cultural issues relevant to their topic area. The Stanford University School of Medicine Multicultural Health Portal also contains many useful cultural and linguistic competency tools including culture guides, language access information and pertinent state and federal laws.
