WISER is pleased to participate in the 15th Annual Safar Symposium on May 23rd, 2017.  The Safar Symposium is a two day multi department research conference held jointly by the Safar Center for Resuscitation Research and the Peter M. Winter Institute for Simulation Education and Research (WISER).  WISER will be hosting the morning session of the symposium on May 23rd.  The Safar Center recently relocated to the Rangos Research Center in the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh of UPMC.  Due to this move, this year’s program is pediatric focus.

The theme for the WISER portion of the Safar Symposium is “Improving Pediatric Patient Safety Through Simulation”.  The keynote speaker for the WISER session will be Marc Auerbach, MD, FAAAP, Msc.  Dr. Auerbach is an Associate Professor of Pediatrics (Emergency Medicine) and of Emergency Medicine; Co-chair INSPIRE (International Network for Simulation Based Pediatric Innovation Research and Education) and Director, Pediatric Simulation, Yale Center for Medical Simulation.  Dr. Auerbach will be presenting Improving Pediatric Patient Safety Through Simulation.  Other speakers for the morning session are:

Melinda Fiedor Hamilton, MD, MSc: Identifying the Importance of Communication Through Simulation Based Training

Ashley Keilman, MD: Pediatric Sepsis Shock Simulation Training and Research

Candace Hippel, CNRA, MSN and Aleena Rorapaugh, SRNA, BSN:   Just in Time Pediatric Simulation:  A View from Both Sides, Students and Clinical Preceptors

Tyler Hutchison Harris, MD:  Effectiveness of Simulation Based Training for the Management of Acute Congenital Heart Disease
