Abstract: It has been pointed out that we need to know how to approach and sympathize with patients’ feelings and behavior as health care providers or pharmacists, as well as the importance of ethics education for pharmacists working in the clinical setting. Each university has implemented an ethics training program, such as “visiting a center for mentally and physically disabled persons, nursing facilities, and terminal care patients,” “listening directly to patients suffering from druginduced diseases,” and “simulating physical disability experiences,” which was newly introduced in pharmaceutical education. Our school also employs the above approaches for early on-site training programs for first-year students aiming to nurture their humanity and achieve understanding of “dignity in life” and “compassion.” A case study involving our students suggested that disabilitysimulation exercises, which can help them to understand the feelings of patients and the elderly, contributed to nurturing an ethical view and a sense of responsibility, and motivated them to become friendly and trustworthy pharmacists.
