Member Spotlight - DDr. Michael Wagner

DDr. Wagner is a neonatal fellow at the Medical University of Vienna, Comprehensive Center for Pediatrics. He coordinates activities at the Vienna Pediatric Simulation Training Center, which provides simulation courses in pediatric medicine for students, physicians, midwives, and nurses. 

What are your research interests?     

My research interests include improving pediatric/neonatal resuscitation and emergency care, as well as patient safety and cognitive behavior. I am also interested in finding ways to 

Include new, innovative technologies into training, such as Virtual/Augmented Reality and the use of additive manufacturing.

What is the most innovative sim-related activity you do in your work?

The most innovative sim-related activity I am working on at the moment is merging technologies such as Augmented Reality and 3D-printing with 3D ultrasound and other imaging modalities to develop patient-specific and individualized training programs for healthcare providers. 

Why did you join IPSS?

I joined IPSS because I was fascinated by the great people I met and had the pleasure of interacting with at IPSSW. I am regularly in contact with many people I have met at previous conferences, and I am collaborating with some of them in various research projects. 

What do you gain from your IPSS membership?  

During my membership, I have learned a lot from collaborating, networking, and discussing research objectives with numerous members of IPSS. Those interactions and collaborations have helped me to build and to strengthen my research focus in the field of pediatric simulation-based training. 

What are you looking forward to at IPSSV? 

I am looking forward to hearing inspiring talks, getting new ideas for my research, and to meet colleagues and friends again virtually.

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.
