Interprofessional Therapeutic Decision-Making: A Live Serious Games Exercise

Spotlight Learning Lab at IMSH 2020

Sunday, January 19
11:30 AM – 12:30 PM
San Diego Convention Center
Upper Level Room 5A

Join us for a review of therapeutic decision-making and the impact across interprofessional care, plus a live gaming exercise in which audience volunteers will be given an opportunity to participate across a variety of disciplines in a live virtual gaming platform.

Learn how to leverage every day technology – laptops, web browsers, and mobile devices – to launch a collaborative cross-discipline training environment and follow in in real time the impact of therapeutic decision making on the virtual patient. Track patient progress across treatment modalities, medication administration, team based, and role-specific clinical decision-making. The game platform is an autonomous, role-based simulation application where learners get to make observations, order lab tests, converse with the patient, determine treatment modalities, administer treatment, and conduct interventions to treat a virtual patient. Students experience the consequences of their communication, collaboration, and administration of role-based practice and treatment in real time. Audience participation is a must!
