The International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) is a multi-day, scientific conference that explores the latest innovations and best practices in healthcare simulation. The conference provides vital resources and tools to healthcare professionals in order to advance their professional skillsets; implement change in medical practices and delivery systems; and, ultimately, to improve patient safety.
IMSH is hosted by the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) and is the organization's largest annual conference. Through the use of simulation, SSH aims to decrease errors and advance performance in patient care. SHH was established in 2004 by professionals using simulation for testing, research, and education in healthcare. Members of the organization include physicians, nurses, allied health and paramedical personnel, developers, educators, and researchers from around the world. SSH fosters the improvement and application of simulation–based modalities, including virtual reality, human patient simulators, standardized patients and task trainers.
