Use of robot-assisted radical prostatectomy to treat prostate cancer is increasing. Surgical training and assessment must deliver skills required by surgeons for robotic techniques. At present, there is a lack of specific measures, placing patients at risk of harm from unidentified error and inadvertent adverse events in specific, risky procedures. This chapter aims to explore various safety measures that have been developed for training and assessment in robot-assisted surgery.
