In this covid-induced roller-coaster
life, learning to cope with stop-start and delay and sudden deadlines to meet
is becoming the tedious norm. When we eventually emerge we will be stronger.
More resilient. And we’ll ‘party like its 1999’. For now, though, we must
patiently continue to be responsive; to be pro-active where we can without
wasting energy in hopeless endeavours; and to remain calm and disciplined.
Our activities in CIME have significantly increased in the past few months
but are about to drop off again until January 10th. C’est La Vie. We have
great plans for 2021 as CIME extends to East Africa. This project has
deadlines that can’t be changed, covid or not. It’s challenging but exciting
at the same time. We in CIME are becoming expert in space planning, designing
technological and educational infrastructure and specifying requirements for
simulation based education: skills and knowledge that are as rare as hen’s
teeth and in high demand as Simulation Based Education continues to grow.
This is being recognised by other institutions in Pakistan who wish to work
with us: a tribute to our continued success. Our online Clinical Simulation
Educators Programme is currently in progress, the majority of participants
hailing from East Africa and through our interaction with them, giving lots
of reasons to be optimistic that CIME Nairobi will also be a great success.
A bit early I know – but like driving
in Karachi, let’s move forward into 2021 with speed and confidence without
checking your mirror or looking over your shoulder: let’s all have a really
great new year!
