Dr. Dan Raemer and Dr. Janice Palaganas, simulation pioneers and hosts of the upcoming CMS-produced podcast DJ Simulationistas… ‘sup?, gave both the opening and closing keynote at the Korean Society for Simulation in Healthcare’s 2017 Annual Scientific Meeting.

Janice and Dan traveled to South Korea in the time between two weeks in Singapore, where they are leading two sessions of the Simulation as a Teaching Tool course at the National University of Singapore.

In their opening keynote, “Dueling Synapses: Dilemmas in Simulation-Enhanced Interprofessional Education,” Janice and Dan ponder the big dilemmas in simulation training, including: “How do I create effective interprofessional healthcare learning experiences using simulation?”, “How do I create high engagement for all learners?”, and “How do I create simulation-enhanced interprofessional learning that can be applied to clinical practice?”

Dan and Janice then returned to give a closing keynote, which was titled, “Closing Synapses: Dilemmas in Debriefing.” In this keynote, Janice and Dan debriefed the audience on their experiences and learning at the conference, modeling state of the art debriefing techniques while also helping attendees to summarize and synthesize their own learning.

The Center for Medical Simulation congratulates Dr. D and Dr. J on their travels and successes, and looks forward to their triumphant return to Boston in the coming weeks.
