Development and Evaluation of Hygie, a New Serious Game for Continuing Medical Education of General Practitioners

2019-07-10 18:41:21 | BioPortfolio

Summary

We produced a prototype video game called Hygie on the 5 most common reasons of consultation in general practice using 9 articles from independent journals based on evidence (reviews by Prescrire and Minerva). We then carried out a randomized trial comparing the learning provided by a week of access to the game versus source articles, in a population of clinical supervisors (CS) from 13 French departments of general practice.

Description

Continuing medical education is important but burdensome work for general practitioners. Current training tools have limitations and may lack the ability to engage some practitioners. Serious games are new pedagogical tools that use video games as engaging education tools. They have significant advantages in terms of efficiency and dissemination.

The aim of this work was to create a new serious game and to evaluate it in terms of efficiency and satisfaction, comparing it with a traditional method of continuing education: article reading.
