Around the World with Healthcare Simulation

Guillaume Alinier, Professor of Simulation in Healthcare Education from the School of Health and Social Work, is in great demand to provide a truly international perspective on healthcare simulation.

Currently working in the Middle East at Sidra Medical and Research Center in Qatar, and after having been one of the co-chairs of the largest simulation event of the year in San Diego in January 2012, Guillaume has recently been invited to deliver keynote speeches and master-classes at two other international events.

At next week’s conference of the European Society of Emergency Medicine being held in Antalya, Turkey, Guillaume will help facilitate a two-day educator workshop with other colleagues from around Europe. He will also deliver a keynote lecture entitled “Simulation is becoming a reality! An overview of high level initiatives from around the world”.

Earlier in September, Guillaume gave the opening keynote speech at the 4th International BACCN (British Association of Critical Care Nurses) Conference in Brighton.  Collette Laws Chapman, BACCN Board member, commented that the conference had record delegate numbers and perfectly showcased BACCN’s dedication to innovation and education for critical care nurses and Allied Health professionals.  Guillaume’s speech, entitled, “Making Simulation real: A Global Perspective!” brought together his wide range of experience and the theme of the conference - “Going Global: Around the world in 48 hours. Quality and Safety in Critical Care”.  Guillaume also ran a pre-conference master-class with Dr Ramawad Soobrah from Imperial College to provide delegates with first-hand experience as to the benefits of using simulation in healthcare education.

Guillaume was instrumental in designing and running the large multiprofessional simulation centre at the University and, over the years, has held national and international roles in the simulation community.
