Uniting Simulation Education

The Canadian Society for Medical Laboratory Science (CSMLS) is hosting a one-day event on November 15, 2018 in collaboration with SIM-one. 


November 15, 2018, 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.


Galleria Room (main level), Hotel Arts Calgary

Phone: (403) 266-4611

Event Description:

This event is structured in three parts:
  1. In the morning, SIM-one will work with attendees to create medical laboratory-specific, educator-based simulation training curricula based on its Keystone Certificate Program.
    1. The CSMLS and SIM-one partnership, and its event deliverable, is in alignment with the CSMLS position statement, “Use of Simulation to Reduce Clinical Placement Hours,” which recommends that a formalized and structured training model be adopted for academic faculty and clinical instructors of simulation to improve the quality as well as sustain growth of this educational technique within medical laboratory science programs.
  2. CSMLS will guide attendees through a process to identify and derive general recommendations for the use of simulation in the assessment and evaluation of competencies (includes competency sign off).
    1. Discussions with academic stakeholders and the Simulation Research Network have raised awareness regarding the variability and national understanding around using simulation to sign off on student competencies.
    2. MLA and MLT competency profiles will be examined, assuming that enough attendees have the expertise to provide recommendations for both.
  3. CSMLS will work with attendees to identify simulation curricula currently in use at accredited academic programs and discuss the tool CSMLS is creating to house such curricula and make it available to all programs (UOIT grant collaboration).
This event is a part of the Simulation and Clinical Placement Initiative at CSMLS. For general Initiative information and research collected to date, please see this webpage
