Keynote speakers, Carl Horsley and Andrew Petrosniak, will expand the way IPSS symposium attendees approach simulation through safety II, a positive approach to address resiliency and adaptability, and how they apply design thinking to simulation for systems testing. Then breakouts, designed as interactive mini workshops, will provide opportunity for practical application and skill building.
For example, breakouts following Carl Horsley’s presentation will start with an overview of design thinking then move into an interactive exercise in empathy using a journey map demonstration and application of the process. Attendees can select from several topics and skills represented in each breakout session.
“Sessions about safety are always highly sought after at IPSS’ conferences, and a keynote session at the virtual conference in October helped set the stage for a symposium to take the discussion to the next level,” says Monica Evans-Lombe, IPSS Executive Director. “Our annual conference, IPSSV, covers a broad range of topic areas. The symposium format, new for 2021, allows attendees to dive deep and expand their knowledge in a specific subject.” Bringing experts in these areas of study together in this novel and somewhat challenging approach makes the symposium perfect for a more advanced audience.
The event is open to IPSS members and non-members, student and LMIC participant pricing is available. Register and learn more about Simulation Transforming Safety at www.ipssglobal.org/ipss2021springsymposium/.
