1 July 2019 - Well Met
The team at Well Met, the conferencing office of Leeds Beckett University, are putting the final touches to the Rose Bowl city campus, ready to host The Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Skills and Simulation Conference on Wednesday 10th July.
The conference - run in partnership with Health Education England, the Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Skills and Simulation Network and is supported by a range of leading simulation technology and training solution providers - brings together health practitioners and technology providers.
Healthcare is highly dependent upon technology. This conference is relevant to all healthcare professionals from doctors, nurses, paramedics, physiotherapists, healthcare academics to healthcare support workers and technical staff, who will have the chance to get hands on with what’s new in the healthcare simulation industry.
Over 250 health professionals and technology experts are expected to attend the conference, entitled Moving on with Simulation – How, why and the future that will include a number of workshops and keynotes from experts in the simulation community and providers of cutting-edge simulation technologies including immersive VR.
Dr Andrew Brennan, Associate Dean, Health Education England in the North East and Yorkshire, said: “The conference offers a great opportunity for clinical professionals, either in academia or in practice, to understand first- hand, the latest in technology advancements and enhanced learning in the areas of simulated learning.
“A choice of workshops will be delivered on a variety of simulation-based education (SBE) topics including accreditation, educational programmes, simulators, using VR, in-situ simulation and writing for publication.”
Rose Bowl city campus, part of the Well Met conference estate, has hosted the conference for the last five years. It’s central location and connecting train network make it a convenient place for delegates to get to from across the Yorkshire and Humber region, and beyond.
Clare Vidler, Conference Manager, said: “Our business strategy identified three key areas of focus for us – financial and professional services, NHS, medial and clinical organisations and charitable concerns. I’m very pleased that we have the opportunity to support the Yorkshire and Humber Clinical Skills and Simulation Conference again this year. We work closely with them to ensure that we meet their needs.“The Yorkshire & Humber Clinical Skills and Simulation Network partners with simulation technology providers, health professionals and university partners. Ann Sunderland, Consultant in Clinical Skills and Simulation, was the Director of Clinical Skills and Simulation at Leeds Beckett University, so it will be great to welcome her back again, as part of the local organising committee at the conference.”
