Teaching and learning of procedures and/or surgical operations involves the development of knowledge, psychomotor and cognitive skills. Simulation improves patient safety as it allows learning and practice away from the patient. In simulation, task trainers like suturing sets, intubation models, catheter insertion models are often used to teach basic skills. Laparoscopic box trainers, computerised endoscopy units, animal and/or cadaveric models can also be used to teach more advanced surgical skills. Optimal use of task trainers in skills development involves using effective teaching methods in a well-designed curriculum that is integrated with the overall curriculum for the learners.
