This month’s paper was Lack of Diversity in Simulation Technology by Conigliaro et al from Simulation in Healthcare. Vic and Ben were joined by Jess and our special guest and this month’s expert commentator, Dr Karanjot Lall (@KaranjotLall). See the summary here.
We spoke about the paper’s findings – the predominance of white skinned mannikins in advertising materials – and how simulation might instead be able to contribute to antiracism and better representation of traditionally marginalised groups. We also highlighted Debra’s Nestel’s recent SESAM keynote on a similar topic and recommend this as additional viewing !
