Healthcare Simulation Middle East announces Egypt representative on Global Ambassador Council
Soheir Elbanna represents Egypt on the Global Ambassador Council at Healthcare Simulation Middle East.
Global ambassadors are the liaison between the non-profit entity and its stakeholders. They ensure mutual interests are identified and realized within the framework of organizational mission and vision.
Soheir Elbanna says, "I believe that my passion and experience in healthcare simulation can help to create value as global ambassador. The motivation for pursuing the role stems from experience as a clinical instructor and simulation coordinator, as well as being a healthcare consumer. Simulation is a critical need for any healthcare process, providing a foundation for innovation and improvement. It is a powerful tool to identify opportunities for improvement (OFI) in the healthcare system, including prototyping new processes as well as testing and refining existing ones."
Join me on this journey and stay tuned for updates. Let's work together to drive change and create meaningful impact on healthcare in Egypt and beyond. Together, we can make a positive difference in the lives of both patients and healthcare professionals."
Lance Baily, Founder & CEO of HealthySimulation.com and advisory board member at Healthcare Simulation Middle East says, "Soheir Elbanna balances a love of learning with that of teaching. She is the recipient of a 12-month subscription to HealthySimulation.com's LEARN platform. Her enthusiasm and appreciation for the content makes it so worthwhile to have built the platform. A champion and ambassador for healthcare simulation, if you've ever known one."
Ansari Shabnam Ateeq, President, Healthcare Simulation Middle East added, "Those who've followed Soheir Elbanna on LinkedIn know there isn't a sim champ in Egypt more suited to the role. An example where being yourself makes the nation look good. Soheir Elbanna will steer engagement & participation of sim professionals in Egypt with regional and global communities."
Egypt is a middle-income country whose healthcare system is subject to challenges. It is one of the most populated countries in the MENA region. This presents opportunities even as economic and public health concerns gain focus. For example, the feasibility of a standardized patient program, where actors match the demographics and clinical history required for a sim scenario, is higher.
Egypt has 20+ medical schools across 15+ cities. Badr University in Cairo, Kasr AlAiny School of Medicine - Cairo University and The British University in Egypt lead the way in simulation-based healthcare education. Having said that, there is work to be done. And the time is now.
