Call for content

We would cordially like to invite you to make a contribution to the 8th DSSH congress,‘Though (t)issues in medical simulation’. This will not only give you the oppurtunity to present your work, as well as sharing your ideas with one another, but also to improve and expand your network (doctors, paramedics, engineers, psychologists, designers,  insurers and the industry).

The title could literally refer to the development of (virtual) material which can simulate the most important clinical characteristics of the human body as well as research concerning adherence. What is the importance of the resemblance with reality? And how will you figure out which aspects of a clinical situation are most important to simulate. Of course, all other "issues" regarding simulation and serious gaming in healthcare are very welcome. You can submit papers for the following categories; team training, simulation, games, management of care and e-health.
