ASA Member Poll on Simulation CME

October 10, 2005

Re: ASA Member Poll on Simulation CME

Dear ASA member,

The ASA is committed to improving patient care and safety through education. As part of that commitment, the ASA would like to know your opinions on the role that simulation can play in continuing medical education (CME). Organized under the Committee on Outreach Education, the ASA Workgroup on Simulation Education invites your participation in the attached survey so that we may determine how to best develop training and educational programs for your benefit. Our workgroup is charged with exploring the optimal ways to identify, organize, develop, credential, standardize, and market high quality simulation CME across the nation.

We have been diligently working on several activities to address simulation training. A web-based registry of existing simulation education opportunities will soon be available to ASA members, and will be located on ASA’s Web site. Once populated, ASA members will be able to search for available opportunities. Our Workgroup sent a separate survey to simulation facilities recently to determine their current capability and interest in participating in simulation CME, and is currently analyzing that data. Plans are now underway to organize an introductory, complimentary, and brief program in simulation to ASA members. Envisioned as a “Simulation Saturday” to be held in March 2006, we hope to share the excitement of simulation training with ASA members in centers across the nation.

Please take a few moments of your time to answer the survey at the following URL http://survey.asahq.org//doform.aspx?fmf=60 . And, we hope you will consider simulation training in your future CME activity!

Sincerely,
Michael A. Olympio, MD
Chair, Workgroup on Simulation Education
