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.
