Simulation Research in Gastrointestinal and Urologic Care: Challenges and Opportunities


Natcher Conference Center, NIH Main Campus, Bethesda, Maryland

NIBIB and NIDDK are co-sponsoring a one day workshop that will explore the current state of research on simulation, identify gaps in research, and highlight opportunities to:

  • Expand basic research on the development and validity of simulation applications to diagnose and treat gastrointestinal and urologic disease
  • Promote research on the use of simulation to identify causes for error in detection and treatment, and to assess methods to prevent complications and improve safety
  • Improve the quality and uniformity of expert performance
  • Identify new methods to analyze the validity and usefulness of simulation applications in clinical care.
