Dear <<First Name | Prénom>>,
We’re excited to welcome our first two members – George Brown College and London Health Sciences Centre (LHSC) – to the SIM-one community! As part of their membership, both organizations will receive discounts on all of SIM-one’s offerings and events, access to grants and funding, latest simulation news, research updates, notices, tips, and much more!
"For George Brown College, there was no question about the benefits of joining SIM-one. Simulation is becoming increasingly important and impactful in the education we provide. Through their government advocacy, SIM-one has achieved substantial investments in colleges’ simulation programs, including ours. Their courses and certificate programs have helped us create highly skilled simulationists to ensure our students have highly effective learning experiences. It is a privilege to be a part of SIM-one and – for a small membership fee – receive significant advantages such as discounts on education offerings and resources." (Cory Ross, dean, community services and health sciences, George Brown College)
"Being a member of SIM-one is critical to supporting the voice and actions of Canada’s health care simulation network. SIM-one's advocacy with government, educational resources, conferences and networking opportunities all strengthen our programs for customers. For a small membership fee, SIM-one offers so much – every simulation centre should join to support their work." (Phil Hunt, business director, Canadian Surgical Technologies & Advanced Robotics (CSTAR))
SIM-one’s new membership programs are available to organizations, individuals, and industry. Join now to save on the SIM Expo and our fall courses!

TIP #350: Design: Use Events to Specifically Reinforce Learning Objectives
When choosing a simulation case, it's essential to identify what learning objectives are being reinforced by the events that occur during the simulation. For example, selecting a case whose events reinforce the need for recognition of rare clinical problems would be completely counter-productive to a course aimed at reinforcing basic resuscitation skills for novices. This reinforces the basic principle that simulation programs should be tailored first to meet the educational needs and objectives of the target population and/or training program, rather than the cases driving the curriculum objectives.
