Games and Game-based Simulations in Medical Professional Training

Games and game-based simulations have been used in medical professional training for well over a decade. More recently, the medical community has been turning to games to meet their skills assessment, continuing competency, and professional credentialing needs. This presentation will share four game-based assessment products targeting diverse health professionals’ needs: nurse educational skills assessment (vHealthCare), emergency department physician decision making skills assessment (Vital Signs), physician diagnostic interview skills assessment (USC Standard Patient Studio), and occupational therapy professional continuing competency certification (NBCOT Navigator). These applications will be demonstrated to illustrate how different game approaches are being employed to assess skills of medical professionals and drive a discussion of how games must be designed to address assessment versus learning needs. In addition, results of research and end-user feedback on the game-based assessments will be shared.
