This conference is a joint meeting of PediSTARS, IPSS and INSPIRE organised by the Department of Pediatrics, AIIMS.

As one of the main proponents of simulation based education in India, PediSTARS India is affiliated to Society of Simulation in Healthcare (SSH), International Pediatric Simulation Society (IPSS) and INSPIRE. PediSTARS India has passionately worked with national and international experts in successfully conducting various workshops across India such as Faculty Development Program (TOT), STEP, NEOS-SIM, SUCCESS and National Simulation Conferences (SIMULUS) over the last 5 years in India.

International Paediatric Simulation Society (IPSS- www.ipssglobal.org ) is an international society dedicated to inspire, grow and lead the Paediatric Simulation Community. International Network for Simulation based Paediatric Research, Innovation & Education(INSPIRE- www.inspiresim.com ) is built around novice and expert researchers ,educators and clinicians who are interested in collaborating across the globe to improve the care delivered to children using simulation.

The All India Institute of Medical Sciences, also known as AIIMS is recognised as one of the most prestigious medical colleges in India as well as in Asia. Since its establishment, it has been consistently ranked as one of the top medical colleges in the country. AIIMS has been successful in achieving a high standard of medical education with a strong curriculum and teaching guidelines for the undergraduate as well as post-graduate educational system in all branches of medicine in the country.

Registration:Open
Workshop 3 : NEOSIM
Date: 1st March, 2019

NeoSim is a one day simulation workshop where delegates participate in real life neonatal emergencies and learn about performing optimally in stressful circumstances using both high and low technology mannequins.
