Eddie A. Adair

Student Practice Facilitator for Pre-Registration Nursing
Great Ormond Street Hospital for Sick Children NHS Foundation Trust

Eddie is a children’s nurse and studied in Queens University in Belfast and has been working at GOSH since 2012. Eddie’s clinical speciality is haematology and oncology. While working on these wards, he found himself teaching clinical skills to students and finding a passion for it. Since then Eddie has joined the Education team as a student practice facilitator and now facilitates simulation learning for Pre – Registration Nursing students. The purpose of this programme is to help develop the emotional resilience and skills of our nursing workforce, by early introduction to managing common emergency situation within paediatrics, using simulation to provide a safe environment to work together.

Mohammad Bayoumi

Neonatology Fellow
Hamad Medical Corporation
Doha, Qatar

I am Dr. Mohammad Bayoumi, a Neonatal - Perinatal Fellow in Neonatal-Perinatal Fellowship Program at Hamad Medical Corporation in Qatar. I have joined the fellowship program after completing my Master and Doctorate of medicine degrees from Al – Azhar University in Cairo, and Membership of the Royal College and Child Health (MRCPCH) from the United Kingdom (UK). Besides training pediatric residents and medical students, my clinical interests focus on neonatal resuscitation simulation, team training and debriefing, inter - professional education and strategies to improve neonatal procedural success rates among trainees and neonatal providers. I did not expect to get such support from my leaders who encouraged me to do my best in the fields of neonatology and simulation based education. I was given the trust to lead the Neonatal Simulation Program in my institute. I feel that it was a great chance to unlock my potential. In addition to that, I am the director of the Pediatric Communication Skills Simulation Course and Pediatric Central Line Simulation Course which are accredited by the Qatar Council for Healthcare Practitioners. I also participate as an Instructor in the Neonatal Emergencies Simulation Course, Neonatal Resuscitation Program and Communication Skills Course.
I have been elected to be a trainee representative in the Board of Directors of the International Pediatric Simulation Society (IPSS). I am also a member of the Society for Simulation in Healthcare (SSH). My aim is not only to learn but also to disseminate and to take what I have learned in this interesting field to the bedside. I am currently involved in research studies in the field of neonatal simulation.
I am pleased to be the manager of the Mobile Pediatric Simulation (MPS) which is a group of healthcare professionals who aim to demonstrate, implement and disseminate unique high quality pediatric simulation-based experience everywhere in the globe. We have conducted several pediatric and neonatal simulation sessions in many countries. They have drawn both local and regional participants. Our Director, Dr. Mostafa Elbaba got the best poster and the best oral presentation in IPSSW2017, so we hope for more in Amsterdam!

Barbara M. Walsh, CMQ/OE, PMP, MD

Associate Professor of Pediatrics, Director, In Situ and Mobile Outreach Simulation
Boston Medical Center, Boston University School of Medicine
Lexington, Massachusetts

Barbara Walsh is a Clinical Associate Professor in Pediatrics (PEM) at Boston Medical Center, BU School of Medicine. She started her career at UMASS PED ED where, during her time there she created a simulation program for the community called COMET: community outreach mobile education training. In this program she used simulation to train community providers on better care of critically ill children. This pilot program served as a segue for a multi-institutional collaborative called ImPACTS – Improving Pediatric Acute Care Through Simulation. This group was funded by R Baby, a private foundation, and were able to study and compare the care provider to acutely ill children across a spectrum of EDS (PEM and community). This work has been published in several journals and multiple national and international workshops have been given on this topic. Barbara is part of INSPIRE the international network of simulation-based pediatric innovations in research and education. She is a simulation expert having taken advanced simulation courses at the Center for Medical Simulation in Charlestown, MA program as well as with Laerdal. She was the Director of Pediatric Simulation at UMASS, then the director at Cohens Children’s medical center and currently the Director of Pediatric Emergency Medicine In Situ and Mobile Simulation. She also is part of the PRIDE group – Pediatric Research In Disaster Education which has created and implemented a pediatric disaster curriculum for prehospital providers as well as created a serious game, 60 seconds to survival. At BMC she is working on creating an outreach network with community sites, community health centers and with local EMS services.
