Our work covers research, design, development and implementation of innovative simulation technology and approaches, with the aim of addressing a real need or problem in healthcare that may include education and training, modelling of proposed changes to clinical processes and procedures, testing and evaluating new devices or procedures, improving the patient experience, or helping publics and patients gain a deeper understanding of the world of surgery and medicine.
Research themes and projects
Partnerships and research sub-groups
St Mary's patient experience hub
The St Mary's patient experience hub is a partnership between ICCESS and the Imperial College Healthcare Charity. The Hub utilises our simulation skills and tools to facilitate patient-centred collaboration across a number of clinical settings to develop improved approaches to care and enhance the patient experience.
SiMMS research group
The Simulation and Modelling in Medicine and Surgery (SiMMS) is a research sub-group within ICCESS. SiMMS brings together researchers in computer science, engineering, mathematics, medicine and surgery to construct suitable models and simulations of clinical processes, including clinical examination, clinical diagnosis and interventional procedures.
