Advancing Simulation Education in Healthcare
Main Image

The SimEd Network’s mandate is to champion simulation-based learning, consolidate expertise and enable practice sharing. In essence, we are the hub of simulation education for Nova Scotia. We help to keep those involved in health simulation education connected and help ensure we are continuously learning and growing our capacity to deliver the highest quality simulation-based medical education in Nova Scotia.


New Inventory of Nova Scotia’s simulation education experts

(June 2018) The SimEd Network has created a comprehensive directory of qualified simulation-based health educators, primarily those who have taken the IMS, SLIIC courses or an equivalent program. The inventory is designed to help connect one another and guide people to the right experts based on their question or need. It also demonstrates our vast and diverse expertise and how our simulation education capacity has grown over the past couple of years.

The document will be updated as our capacity and expertise grow and change.
