Abstract

Simulation has already transformed medical education, and holds the power to shape modern healthcare systems, communities and populations. Simnovate is a mission, a community and a partnership of passionate, driven and game-changing individuals, who wish to see the change we can make together, in the world, right now. Four domains were defined: patient safety, medical technologies, global health and pervasive learning, with domain group experts that span healthcare simulation, outcomes research, aviation, serious gaming, patient safety, economics, machine learning, biorobotics, implementation science, global health and the visual arts. Bringing together simulation, innovation and education, for better health and care.
