In a critical time for collaboration and information sharing during the COVID-19 pandemic, SSH members have a brand new, online member benefit.
Announced March 23, CAE Healthcare and UK-based iRIS Health Solutions announced via press release that CAE’s “COVID-19 Simulated Clinical Experience (SCE)” for healthcare is now available and free of charge to the global iRIS community and will shortly be made available free of charge to the full membership of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH), which has 4,200 members in 60 countries.
“The Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH) knows that our members are working tirelessly to develop and deliver critical training and educational experiences during this challenging time,” said Bob Armstrong, President of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare. “Social distancing and sequestering are moving learning to virtual spaces. I am very pleased that CAE Healthcare, an SSH Corporate Roundtable member, and their affiliate, iRIS, are making their COVID-19 simulation scenario and database tool available at no cost to our society members.
“We thank CAE Healthcare and IRIS for helping improve patient care during this pandemic.”
What this means for SSH members is that, in the coming days, members will receive a log-in email (including a username and password) from iRIS. This email will be the result of an account having already been created for all SSH members in order to access the SCE. All other communications about the resource will come from official SSH sources.
SSH has developed a webpage for COVID-19 Updates. Besides the link, you can also find this page on the ssih.org homepage in the top blue navigation bar. We will maintain all official COVID-19 communication from SSH on this page. Additionally, we have created a COVID-19 resources page open to the general public in an attempt to centralize and promote relevant information. This page is updated daily, so please check often for additional resources and communication.
SSH is developing regular COVID-19 SimSeries webinars, beginning on Tuesday, March 30, at 2 PM Eastern/11 AM Pacific. These webinars will be free to attend either live, or through our extensive webinar archive in the SSH Live Learning Center. You will receive more communications on this new series soon. ~ Curtis Kitchen more
