The SSH Research Committee is providing one $5000 grant to support promising pilot studies. Research representing appropriate quantitative, qualitative or hybrid approaches are equally welcome. The main objective is to support investigators in performing health-related simulation-based pilot studies. We are seeking studies that are both novel and have strong potential for a positive impact on healthcare delivery processes and outcomes through, for example, education, assessment, usability testing or system integration.
