Message from The Chairman of SHSC 2018 Scientific Committee

I would like to welcome you all to the Saudi Health Simulation Conference (SHSC) 2018. From the very beginning, the Ministry of Health has recognized the importance of simulation in training healthcare workers and has been generously sponsoring these conferences since 2015. Currently, Saudi Arabia is undergoing major leaps to the future. Vision 2030 will transform the healthcare sector to be highly competitive, efficient, outcome oriented, and skillful. It is our responsibility to prepare the healthcare workforce to prevail and stand for these challenges.

Accordingly, we have chosen the theme of SHSC 2018 to be: “Supporting Healthcare Transformation”. SHSC 2016 witnessed the birth of the Saudi Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSSH) and SHSC 2018 will witness the first general assembly of the SSSH. The members of the SHSC 2018 Scientific Committee are working hard to put together a breathtaking program. Besides world class plenary presentations by renowned speakers, SHSC 2018 attendees will have ample opportunities to participate in various contests to demonstrate their expertise in simulation. Further to the very popular “SimDawri”, there will be competitions in debriefing, moulage, innovations and simulation technologies. We are all excited to meet you on April 23, 2018 at Four Seasons Conference Center, Kingdom Tower, Riyadh.

Dr. Hani Lababidi
