We are the International Pediatric Simulation Society

IPSS is a global community of pediatricians, pediatric subspecialists, pediatric nurses, educators, and other allied health professionals from over 30 countries, all dedicated to improving the care of infants and children worldwide through multi-disciplinary, simulation-based education, training, and research in pediatric simulation.

We strive to bring the knowledge and skills we have gained to the widest possible audience, and welcome all healthcare professionals who care for children and infants regardless of where you practice, for we truly are IPSS Global.

Since our first meeting in Stockholm, Sweden in 2008, membership to the International Pediatric Simulation Society has grown to span the globe.

I am a UK-trained Neonatologist working in Starship NICU in Auckland, New Zealand. I am a member of the Douglas Starship Simulation faculty and lead the simulation programmer in NICU. My key simulation interests include education, communication and patient safety. I have been an active member of IPSS since 2011, member of the Education Committee since 2012, am a past Co-Chair of the Education Committee (2017-2018) and a current member of the Board of Directors. In collaboration with others, I established the IPSS-INSPIRE Fellowship in 2018 and am on the working group leading this initiative. My vision for IPSS is to continue to support collaborative knowledge sharing and research development in the pediatric and perinatal simulation community. My wish for IPSS is to see an increasing number of non-physician members and to support and develop the ability of those still at the early stage of simulation.
