Indus Hospital Successfully Hosts 4th Edition of Simulation Instructors Workshop
Karachi, July 19, 2023 – The highly anticipated 4th edition of the Simulation Instructors Workshop (SIW) was successfully conducted by the Emergency Department of Indus Hospital, Korangi Campus, from July 13-15, 2023. This year’s workshop differed from previous editions as it was held in person, allowing for a more comprehensive exploration of various topics related to simulation and its application in Healthcare and Healthcare Professional Education (HPE).
The three-day workshop, led by esteemed Course Directors, Dr. Jabeen Fayyaz from SickKids Toronto and Dr. Adeel Khatri from Indus Hospital and Health Network, saw the participation of 14 eager attendees, comprising IHHN faculty members and senior residents who share a keen interest in Simulation-Based Education (SBE).
The SIW was designed to build upon concepts based on SBE standards of best practice and move towards the introduction of relatively complex concepts. The program aimed to equip attendees with the necessary skills to implement these best practices in Simulation-Based HPE at their respective local healthcare settings, ultimately leading to modernized teaching methodologies and improved patient care quality.
