Summit Consensus Day One Complete

The first day of the SSH Consensus Summit is over.  A phenomenal amount of work was accomplished on a variety of topic areas pertinent to the advancement of simulation-based research and education.  Monographs for ten topic areas have been written, tweaked, and revised based on panelists interpretation of the state of the simulation-based literature and participant interaction with panelists. This interaction and ensuing discussion has been an important collaborative step in the consensus process.  Day two of the consensus will provide an  overview of the revised monographs to entire participant group.  Proceedings from the Consensus Summit will be published in an upcoming special issue of the journal of Simulation in Healthcare. Participating in the Consensus Summit as a co-chair and panelist has been a lot of work, but incredibly rewarding.  Having the opportunity to work hand in hand with pillars in the simulation movement such as Ronnie Glavin,  John Schaefer III and many others has been a remarkable experience.
