17-19 September 2021
Thank you for joining us at IPSSV2021: A Virtual Experience!
We enjoyed seeing you join more than 500 renowned global experts for the world’s largest meeting dedicated exclusively to pediatric and perinatal simulation. With our theme of “Collaboration. Resilience. Inclusion: Tying it together”, attendees discussed the role simulation plays in providing safe, effective care to sick children and infants, and the continued evolution and expansion of pediatric simulation across the globe.
Whether convening virtually or in-person, our commitment holds true. We enable members to present their scientific work making it accessible to our global membership. IPSSV2021 exceeded expectations and met attendees in the moment with a format that promised to be even more engaging, thought-provoking, and relevant than ever.

Healthcare simulation is well established for training teamwork skills and behaviours. But perhaps its real impact is shaping culture and strengthening relationships within and between teams. How can we design, deliver and debrief our team training sessions so that we achieve these goals? If done well – we can send powerful messages about excellence, shared goals, shared knowledge and mutual respect. We can establish psychological safety that translates from the simulation environment to the real world. But there are also risks –simulation can also do harm to culture and relationships. In this session, we consider examples and reflect on principles to guide our practice and future research in this area.

We are in a critical period in academic medicine regarding the creation of inclusive clinical environments for both our learners and our patients. How can individual educators use their learning activities to contribute to a climate of inclusion and create a safe and nurturing environment for learners to thrive? This talk will explore several strategies to support teachers of all levels, including the use of health disparities literature, to bring inclusion and belonging to the next level.

CALL FOR ABSTRACTS
ABSTRACT SUBMISSION IS NOW CLOSED
The Meeting Organizing Committee (MOC) for IPSSV2021 invites the submission of original works of scholarship and scholarly instruction for consideration under the theme of “Collaboration. Resilience. Inclusion: Tying it together”
The deadline for submission is 14 June 2021
The committee is seeking material that demonstrates innovative uses of simulation in research, education and safety or instructs others in the same. This may include, but is not limited to, skills training, team training, systems integration, and system and facility design. Additionally, presentation of novel uses of standardized patients/actors, mannequins, task trainers, virtual reality and computer-based simulations are encouraged. All healthcare disciplines are strongly encouraged to submit proposals. All submissions will be peer-reviewed as part of the selection process. Both completed projects and works in progress will be considered. Abstracts previously presented at regional, national or international meetings are eligible for consideration as encore presentations.
Sessions at IPSSV focus on scholarship and knowledge generation. The scientific program thus consists of two basic categories 1) presentations of completed projects or projects in process, and 2) interactive educational sessions designed to advance the scholarly capabilities of attendees. The MOC will allocate accepted abstracts to one of four presentation formats that address these two issues based on scientific merit and preference indicated by authors:
- Oral Themed Presentation Sessions
- Traditional Poster Round Presentation Sessions
- Instructional Simulation Workshops
