Just published in the British Medical Journal (BMJ) Simulation & Technology Enhanced Learning – the INSPIRE KJ Reverse-Merlin exercise that outlines the future of pediatric simulation. Hunt EA, Duval-Arnould J, Chime NO, Auerbach M, Kessler D, Duff JP, Shilkofski N, Brett-Fleegler M, Nadkarni V, Cheng A. Building consensus for the future of paediatric simulation: a novel ‘KJ Reverse-Merlin’ methodology. BMJ STEL . And the consensus is to:
- allocate limited resources by engaging health systems partners to define education and research priorities
- conduct and publish rigorous translational and cost-effectiveness research
- foster collaborative multidisciplinary research and education networks
- design simulation solutions with systems integration and sustainability in mind
- leverage partnerships with industry for simulation, medical and educational technology
- advocate to engage the education community, research funding agencies and regulatory bodies.
