Members of Jump Simulation, a part of OSF Innovation and a collaboration between OSF HealthCare and the University of Illinois College of Medicine Peoria (UICOMP), were chosen to make presentations at the 2020 International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH), January 18 – 22.

The annual conference is the largest gathering of simulation health care professionals in the world. It's an event where more than 2,500 hundred attendees can learn best practices from each other, find areas for collaboration and hear about the latest industry specific products.

There are well over 100 workshops and presentations over the course of three days. Eleven of those presentations come from Jump Sim and UICOMP personnel.

Learn more about these presentations below.

Planning for ROI – Building Value into Simulation Program Development

Saturday, January 18 | 8:00 AM - 12:00  PM


Presenters: Dr. Lisa Barker and team. 

Description: The concept of “return” for effort is critical for the sustainment of simulation programs and centers worldwide. Using game theory, this workshop will introduce simulation educators and administrators to a framework for demonstrating levels of programmatic value that has been applied at a large-scale simulation center, culminating in a Return on Investment (ROI) calculation where appropriate.

Full STEAM Ahead

Monday, January 20 | 10:00 - 11:30 AM

Presenters: Noël Adams, Kristina Sanders, Ann Wheatley

Description: Health care focused STEAM programming can be implemented at a simulation center or remotely to generate revenue, positively impact the community, and potentially positively influence long term projected clinician shortages by engaging youth.

Course attendees will learn the methodology and tools necessary to implement sustainable STEAM programming while creating an individualized plan that can be implemented at their own center or in situ.

Sim-MAKERS Playbook: Fostering innovation on a budget or broke

Sunday, January 20 | 3:00 - 4:00 PM

Hands-on Workshop

Presenters: Shannon Egli, Noël Adams, Kristina Sanders

Description: This course helps participants to develop their innovation skills and provides simple DIY solutions to lack of money, minutes, or manpower when you're training everyone from surgeons to STEMs.

Learners will be given a "Sim-MAKERS Playbook" and guided through each section's activities and sample curriculum with hands on learning and creation. Participants will leave with the guidebook, an innovation mindset, MAKER experience, and skills to inspire a culture of innovation in their established training systems.

Recalibration Café: A Debriefing Community of Practice

Tuesday, January 21 | 3:00 - 4:30 PM

Hands-on Workshop

Presenters: Ann Williemsen-Dunlap and Lisa Carlisle


Description: The Recalibration Café was designed at Jump Simulation as an opportunity for facilitators of simulation-based programs to meet, either online or in-person, with a community of learners who desire to increase their skills in a psychologically safe and supportive environment.

In this course, you will learn how to design, implement and use valuable tools that will allow you to create your own successful community of practice.   In this session, the learner will have the opportunity to come to the “café” and learn how to review and improve on difficult debriefings and conversations with tools learners can use in their own program. 

Creating a Multi-modal Skin Lesion Identification Simulation & Education Mobile App

Wednesday, January 22 | 8:30 – 10:00 AM

Research Study Development Program

Presenter: Dr. Lisa Barker
