Network Pediatric Simulation


of emergency situations finds increasing use in medical education. Training focuses on medical skills and application of algorithms as well as teamwork, interdisciplinary cooperation and communication. Thus far this effort, however, has relied largely on the commitment of individuals to move this concept forward.

The network pediatric simulation

was launched in 2014 to connect individuals and centers in German-speaking countries involved in pediatric simulation – whether on a small or large scale.

Our goals

Through local networking and collaboration our existing human and material resources should be made more widely available. Large-scale networking enables common research projects and the development of standards for simulation-based training and education.

Our goals

We define and implement quality criteria along with the development of certified training courses. The working group seeks to recommend criteria for the implementation of simulation-based teaching methods.

We will establish a mentoring program for both beginners and advanced pediatric simulation instructors to promote the exchange of knowledge and experience.


GRASP – German-speaking Research Association for Simulation in Pediatrics

Improving patient safety remains a top priority. We strive to achieve this goal through collaborative, multi-center research in the area of simulation-based training in pediatrics. First, we will determine the status quo for pediatric simulation training. Then, we will create new standards and guidelines aligned with established needs.

Along these lines, we endeavor to collaborate with international and local networks through relationships formed through participation in national and international conferences. Through a research exchange database we seek to participate in ongoing studies.


Our goals

Members of this working group aim to establish common communication platforms and integrate the network in regional professional societies and politics.

Our goal is to promote integration of various professional and disciplinary groups interested in pediatric simulation to define a unified way forward.
