“One of the main bioethical principles taught to all healthcare professionals worldwide is the “primum non nocere” or, in English, “first do not harm”. However, it is inevitable that trainees will occasionally cause preventable injuries to patients. From the ethical viewpoint, such injuries are only justified when all effort is made to minimize patient harm. Simulation provides an innovative approach to medical education, in which trainees can practice medical skills to be better prepared for clinical encounters, potentially reducing such risks.”
