Paediatric patients differ from adult patients in significant ways and these differences must be acknowledged and addressed in order to develop successful paediatric simulation-based training and research programmes. Numerous practical issues involving the simulation of paediatric anatomic and physiologic variation across the developmental spectrum serve as a major driving force behind paediatric simulation. In addition, there is a strong ethical imperative that serves to motivate paediatric healthcare professionals to optimize the use of simulation to enhance the care and safety of their patients. Despite numerous innovations in paediatric simulation-based training and research, many challenges and opportunities remain to be addressed.
