Considering the success of the PediatricSimulationGames 2018, this year Sapienza University of Rome will organize the 2019 edition of the Games together with SIMEUP, SIP, AHA, the Permanent Conference of Pediatric Residency Programs Directors, ONSP and CEQUAM. The PediatricSimulationGames will become a fixed appointment in the educational program of Sapienza University of Rome.
The novelty of 2019 will be the participation of universities coming from other countries. On such occasion we will try and establish the essential points of the Mondial Games that will be held in Mexico City in 2020, during the International Conference of Pediatric Intensive Care.
The Games will be held in Latina, between the 10th and 15th of September.
The mood will be ‘learning to play’ and ‘playing to learn’.
Learning to play: in a friendly but highly technical competition, as in the last edition we will have an international jury composed of four major figures of the global Pediatric Emergency Care, that will handle the education debriefings at the end of each session. Even more judges could be invited according to the number of international teams participating. Playing to learn: we know from the evaluation they completed that the residents started studying a long time before the event and have continued studying even after the Games, preparing for next edition in order to improve and compete.
To allow every team to play more, the Games will be composed of four rounds, playing for four days in a row. At the end of the rounds, there will be a final between the winners of each round. If there will be more than 32 teams, we will set up a new round every 8 new teams.
Application to the Games will be open from January 1st to February 25th according to the rules of this manual.
The 2019 Games will be patronized by several scientific societies, including the Pediatric AHA , SIAIP, SIMRI, SINP, SINEPE. Because of the new interest manifested, this year we will also have the American Heart Association and the European Society for Emergency Medicine.
Additionally, the Games will be patronized by the Municipality of Latina and the Province of Latina, that provided the structure in which the Games will be held, the Technical Institute ‘Vittorio Veneto’. The Association ONLUS nuovArmonia will also patronize the event.
