New Network: The Northern Ontario Simulation Network

February 6, 2024

The Northern Ontario Simulation Network aims to foster the future of healthcare throughout the entire region of Northern Ontario, by establishing an open platform for collaboration on healthcare simulation.

Their mission is to:

  • Champion diverse healthcare simulation in Northern Ontario through collaborating, facilitating and sharing
  • Foster simulation education, professional development, and the advancement of simulation-centered research and innovation in Northern Ontario
  • Connecting simulationists in Northern Ontario, inclusive of our rural and remote region

They currently have representation from over a dozen hospitals and academic affiliations in Northern Ontario. They are seeking representatives from Sault St. Marie, Parry Sound, and rural-remote Northwestern Ontario areas. Meetings take place virtually every 3-4 months; and have a shared space online to continue the conversation with breakout rooms, file sharing, and reference to previous meetings.
