RISE Presence in Paris, France

In July 2013, Dr. Valerie Howard, Director of the RISE Center and Past President of INACSL, presented in Paris, France at the Global Network for Simulation in Healthcare (GNSH) meeting of simulation leadership professionals.  She was joined by Susan Brien MD, Viren Naik MD, and Carol Durham EdD (current Presidents of INACSL) as they presented strategies for leadership and sustainability for Simulation Organizations.  The GNSH is comprised of leaders of global simulation organizations who are committed to enhancing patient safety, healthcare quality, research, and education by promoting the appropriate use of simulation through collaboration, advocacy and support.  The three main topics presented at the meeting were change management, creating value, and organizational structure.
