Event Details


On Monday, May 30, 2016, Toronto will welcome its first National Forum on Simulation for Quality & Safety – an exciting knowledge-sharing event on the growing interest in using simulation to improve patient safety and quality of care.

The event is designed for health care quality and safety improvement leads, executives, and other leaders interested in learning how simulation can be used to advance quality and safety work.

This groundbreaking initiative is a joint launch by SIM-one, IDEAS (Improving & Driving Excellence Across Sectors), Canadian Patient Safety Institute (CPSI), Accreditation Canada, Health Insurance Reciprocal of Canada (HIROC), and Health Quality Ontario (HQO).

The purpose of the Forum is to:

  • Demonstrate ways in which simulation reduces adverse events, costs and financial risks for hospitals;
  • Promote evidence and examples supporting the use of simulation at the point of care delivery;
  • Highlight current Canadian leaders and their knowledge and insights into establishing hospital-based simulation programs; and
  • Motivate decision-makers to pursue the integration of simulation-based patient safety and quality improvement initiatives/education/programs at their organizations.

The event will be co-chaired by:

  1. Dr. Teodor Grantcharov, MD, PhD, FACS, Associate Professor of Surgery, University of Toronto; Canada Research Chair in simulation and surgical safety; creator of the surgical black box.       
  2. Dr. Adalsteinn (Steini) D. Brown, D.Phil, Director, Institute of Health Policy, Management and Evaluation; co-chair of the IDEAS Quality Improvement (QI) Program.

Attendees should expect a dynamic program of social and networking opportunities, and an inspiring and informative lineup of presenters from Canadian leaders in simulation in hospitals.
