Kelly Kadlec is a Pediatric Intensivist at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center and The University of Nebraska Medical Center in Omaha, Nebraska.   He is a PALS instructor and the PICU Education and Simulation Director at Children’s Hospital & Medical Center. His main interests in simulation include resident and staff education and resuscitation training. He is currently pursuing my Masters in Education at the University of Cincinnati.

Description of Webinar

This webinar will discuss the topic of simulation-based inter-professional simulation education a general overview and review of the most important aspects will be discussed.  Inter-professional education, as it relates to simulation, offers unique benefits, considerations and challenges compared to other methods of simulation; these nuances will be the primary focus of the webinar.


At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  1. Outline the benefits of providing simulation-based inter-professional education to improve communication and performance.
  2. Understand the common challenges of simulation-based inter-professional education in order to provide solutions to improve the education experience.
  3. Utilize the knowledge gained to develop, or improve, simulation-based inter-professional education at the participants’ respective institutions or programs.



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.
