The Drug Round Game is an educational board game which helps frontline healthcare professionals to understand, recognise and minimise medication errors. The majority of errors are avoidable and more effective training can help reduce errors by improving knowledge, confidence and numeracy.
The Drug Round Game, developed with City University London and Health Education England, is designed to deliver and test knowledge, especially around drug calculations.
“Knowledge about drugs and when and how to use them is critical for patient well-being and safety… What better way to learn than by playing a game.. Achieves the learning required in an enjoyable yet challenging way for students who end up with the knowledge they need to ensure patient safety.”
“Through the games and the refresher, we were able to identify problems such as that pharmacists need to explain better the medications they deliver to wards and check understanding with nurses. We now have new plans to distribute written information.”
