Membership Newsletter

One of the benefits of membership is access to the IPSS quarterly newsletter. This newsletter is a regularly distributed publication of interest to professionals who participate in pediatric simulation.

The IPSS Newsletter reports the latest Association activities and developments in pediatric simulation. Coverage includes a wide range of critical issues in pediatric simulation including education, research and practice.


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.
