You expect a rich mixture of presentations, interactive hands-on workshops and podium discussions on many different topics. The scientific program includes use of simulation to optimize the inter-professional acute care of patients, faculty abilities to design and conduct goal-oriented simulation scenarios and debriefings, technological developments, simulation training in surgery, and how medical students can support the running of simulation centers on many levels.
The hands-on sessions address different modalities of simulation: phantom skill trainers, computerized manikins, PC-based virtual hospital, CAVE-based solutions of immersive virtual reality, patient role-playing, mental as well as dry- and wet-lab training for surgeons. Workshops on hospital healthcare provision will be held by Prof. Boris Tolg (HAW Hamburg) who developed this educational program as to simulate different health care situations.
