Elevate Your Impact with Laerdal's Immersive Experience at IMSH 2024

The International Meeting on Simulation in Healthcare (IMSH) is a scientific conference that allows us to sharpen our skills and be better when we INNOVATE, DISSEMINATE, EDUCATE, and ADVOCATE! 

Learn how Laerdal Solutions can help elevate your simulation impact and improve program outcomes as we host interactive presentations highlighting our latest offerings.

Innovation Focused on Impact


New - MamaAnne®
Transform the standard of obstetric care with our new birthing simulator, designed to tackle the critical issues of maternal morbidity and mortality head-on. MamaAnne combines effortless setup, clinical realism, and modular options to meet competency requirements, while paving the way for growth as maternal care evolves.


New - SimMan® Critical Care
Evolving respiratory and critical care needs demand tetherless mechanical ventilation that allows users to progress through transitions of care from pre-hospital to ICU. SimMan Critical Care uses breakthrough technology for immersive real-world scenarios managing critically ill patients.


New - Accelerate Nurse Onboarding
Augment your nurse onboarding experience by integrating our modular onboarding program with your existing program to increase competency and confidence among nursing staff.

Special Sessions You Can’t Miss

Simulations Save Lives

Major Reduction in Maternal and Newborn Deaths ​After Implementation of Safer Births Training

Date: January 22, 2024
Time: 4:00-5:00 pm
Location: Main Stage
Speaker: Hege Langli Ersdal, MD, PhD


Learn more about this session

In-situ simulation training for “day-of-birth” emergencies significantly improves clinical care. Implementation of the Safer Births Bundle of Care program in Tanzania has shown a reduction of maternal and early newborn deaths by approximately 50% among 300,000 deliveries.

The presentation will cover lessons learned from the program and their applicability in both high and low-medium-income settings.


Competency-based Education Learning Lab Session

CBE: Using simulation as steppingstones toward practice readiness

Date: January 23, 2024
Time: 10:00 am
Location: Room 11B


Learn more about this session

Nursing Education is in a paradigm shift from a focus on curriculum structures and processes that drive teaching and learning to now one of competencies. Simulation and experiential learning will be powerful teaching tools in defining the path toward competency-based education (CBE). This session will engage participants to explore the concept of competency-based education by actively achieving competency during the session. Participants will align benchmarks, milestones, and formative assessments to simulation activities that support learner development in building competency.

The focus of this session is to:

  1. Engage attendees to view the shift of competency-based education from both a learner and educator lens and
  2. Facilitate a dialogue that acknowledges learner and educator challenges, alike and
  3. Inspire a pathway utilizing simulation-based strategies that build toward a competency-based trajectory.


  • Discuss the paradigm shift toward competency-based education in nursing.
  • Appreciate the impact of building competence with clear opportunities for assessment, coaching, and independent practice.
  • Identify simulation-based teaching strategies that help to build learners toward practice readiness.
