  7. Cross Industries Approach to Improving Neonatal Care We have experts from NASA and Athletics UK as well as Formula 1 running workshops on the approaches they take to simulation, risk, and teamworking to maintain high standards. What can we adapt from them into our Practice. We are organizing the next annual neonatal simulation conference in September on the 26th and 27th of September 2017 at the Grand Harbor Hotel Southampton. The conference has a multidisciplinary theme of ‘Simulating Together to Improve Neonatal Outcomes’. We are looking to showcase work done by you in the field of neonatal simulation which you think is pertinent in furthering our approach to how we deliver simulation in the neonatal intensive care environment. A list of potential workshops and topics are attached.
