The KidSIM Pediatric Simulation Program based out of the Alberta Children's Hospital works to provide learners surrogate clinical experiences with pediatric patients in as close to a ‘real-life’ situation as possible through the use of high-fidelity mannequins as well as a teaching space that mimics the clinical setting. KidSIM is a world-class program, known for delivering top-notch educational training and conducting cutting-edge research. KidSIM also provides education and support to help families and other non-clinical care providers to be better prepared for looking after children with high-risk medical situations that might occur outside of the healthcare setting.
KidSIM delivers interprofessional
simulation-based training to healthcare providers, electives, fellows, and the families or caregivers that care for children at home. KidSIM also has a well established mobile education program designed to provide education and support to rural partners.
The KidSIM Program is a leader in simulation based faculty development courses. KidSIM offers a wide breadth of simulation and debriefing based courses for all levels of learners - ranging from beginner, intermediate to advanced.
The KIdSIM ASPIRE Research Program is a world leader in simulation based research, conducting innovative, high-quality research to inform healthcare providers, administrators and families of best practices, which will optimize pediatric patient outcomes from illness.
