To the Editor: In their article, Weller and colleagues describe how simulation can be used to reduce the underlying causes of adverse events.1 They point out that the Lucian Leape Institute is urging medical schools to take advantage of simulation to equip students with skills to protect patient safety.2 We are encouraged by this, and wish to share our experience of using simulation to improve patient safety, specifically to reduce medication incidents.
