About Buenos Aires

Buenos AiresSIMPeds is proud to be partnering with the Hospital de Pediatría Prof. Dr. Juan P. Garrahan (HPJPG) to develop the first pediatric simulation center of excellence in Buenos Aires, Argentina. With 500 beds, as well as 20 operating rooms for all surgical specialties, HPJPG is Argentina’s premier Children’s Hospital.

This multiyear collaboration is aimed to develop a Pediatric Simulation Program at HPJPG to improve patient outcomes and safety via team training, competency training, staff development, and quality improvement. Under the direction of Dr. Weinstock, SIMPeds will assist and advise the creation of a strong program with an effective and efficient infrastructure to serve as a model for the rest of Argentina.

Once the infrastructure is in place, SIMPeds will train simulation Faculty in the art and science of simulation and debriefing. This will adequately prepare HPJPG faculty to facilitate multidisciplinary pediatric simulation courses. These courses will be developed to support delivery of safe and efficient pediatric care at HPJPG.

The collaboration will set a strong foundation for ongoing programmatic expansion at HPJPG and throughout Argentina and an everlasting partnership between SIMPeds and HPJPG.
