What is IPSS?

The International Pediatric Simulation Society (IPSS) is dedicated entirely to pediatric, perinatal, and associated health care providers and organizations utilizing simulation-based education to improve care and safety for children.

History

The International Pediatric Simulation Society (IPSS) was founded in 2008 by 11 multi-national pediatric medical practitioners. Their goal was to promote multi-disciplinary simulation in all healthcare subspecialties that treat infants and children.

IPSS Mission Statement

To inspire, grow and lead the global Pediatric Simulation community.

IPSS Vision Statement

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.
