International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research, & Education

Welcome to INSPIRE

The International Network for Simulation-based Pediatric Innovation, Research, & Education is a collaborative group of simulation experts, clinicians, educators, investigators, statisticians, human factors researchers, and psychologists who have one common goal & mission.

Our organization is loosely built around institutions & researchers who are currently collaborating on multi-center simulation research, as well as those who have completed and/or are awaiting new projects to join.  Although we were designed to be pediatric, we now have members from multiple clinical disciplines, including internal medicine, surgery, obstetrics-gynecology, psychiatry, and anesthesiology.

To improve the lives of children through healthcare simulation science

To serve as a global community that catalyzes discoveries and promotes collaboration in simulation-based research, scholarship, and innovation

Core Values
We strive to create a collaborative environment with open-sharing of ideas and accessibility between members while breaking down silos.

We encourage innovation through taking risks and challenging the status quo.

We believe in transparency, trust, respect, and high standards for quality in all of our endeavors.

We aim to improve the delivery of medical care to acutely ill children by answering important research questions pertaining to resuscitation, technical skills, behavioral skills, debriefing and simulation-based education
