For the AMEE Simulation Committee Debra Nestel provides a report on Simulcast, an online initiative to connect the Simulation community through their multimedia online presence.


Simulcast aims to connect the simulation community – educators, researchers, clinicians and other professionals. Through our podcasts, blog and online presence, we aim to ‘translate’ conversations from academic to practical, and encourage a flow of ideas into the community for reflection and discussion. We discuss issues across the breadth of healthcare simulation – practical scenario design and delivery, simulation debriefing, psychological safety, translational simulation, ethics, pedagogy and some cool tech stuff.

The team – Victoria Brazil, Ben Symon, Jesse Spurr and Jessica Stokes-Parish – draw on their clinical, education and simulation backgrounds in producing the show. We host a monthly journal club discussion, feature podcasts on hot topics and/or with talented guests, and a regular feature article from Advances in Simulation. We offer conference ‘wraps’ from IMSH, SESAM and the Australasian Sim Congress.
