This letter expands upon the three tenets of the Healthcare Simulation Manifesto - comprehensive safety, collaborative advocacy, and ethical leadership. To do this, we will discuss two key terms: a € essential' and a € autonomy' in relation to safety for standardized/simulated patients (SPs). In this time of crisis, simulationists must move the boundary of skills training previously accepted as safe for human beings, and leverage technology to ensure the highest level of safety achievable for our SPs.
