Game On! Using Gamification for Health Improvement
Monday April 25| 0900-1500
It means using elements of games (like Monopoly, Angry Birds and Minecraft) and design in non-gaming contexts (like health care!). It’s rapidly spreading internationally as an exciting way to engage people in change.
The BC Sepsis Network used gamification in its 150 Lives in 150 Days campaign (here’s a great poster that explains how) and the Surgical Quality Action Network will be using it in its Race for Infection Prevention.
In a Workshop?
This full-day, very interactive workshop will take place in Kelowna on Monday, April 25 at the Coast Capri Hotel and is designed to provide participants with an understanding of how motivational theory and game design can engage patients, families and those working within the health care system to improve care.
You’ll get an opportunity to explore how gamification can be used in your own health improvement initiatives and take home some resources to help you get started!
