DSSH congress 7
Medical Simulation: Chain Reaction towards Patient Safety
Healthcare is a multidisciplinary effort, with different groups of practitioners adopting their own standards and working methods. With the upcoming congress we aim to discuss- and show how simulation training can create better integrated, and safer care. A chain reaction to improving quality in healthcare!

* Call for content *
You are emphatically invited to share your ideas and experiences at the 7th congress of the Dutch Society for Simulation in Healthcare as they relate to this year's topic; the integration of simulation across the links of the healthcare chain!
We encourage you to submit an abstract in one of two formats; a scientific format or a practical format (see below). The best submissions will be invited to give an oral presentation (7 minutes presentation, 3 minutes discussion). Other high-quality proposals will be invited to pitch their ideas in a speed presentations session (5 slides, 3 minutes).
1. Scientific format
The basis for a scientific abstract can be a completed, structured literature review, or a report of a completed scientific study. The abstract should be structured as follows: introduction, methods, results, conclusion/discussion. Your abstract should not exceed 350 words. All proposals will be reviewed by the DSSH science committee who will advise the selection committee.
2. Practical format
The format for a practical abstract are less strict. Important criteria are the innovative value and the relevance for (training for) medical practice. Again, please do not use more than 350 words. Practical proposals will be reviewed directly by the selection committee.
Presentations supporting the Congress’ theme will be prioritized, however the call for content is open for every type of presentation relevant to simulation and serious gaming in Healthcare. There will be an award for the best innovative presentation!
* Submission procedure *
This call closes November 15nd, 2014. Please indicate in the first line of your abstract whether you are submitting a scientific abstract or a practical abstract. You can send your abstract here.
