We co-design all our training and assessment games with the specific domain experts.
Serious Games Asia works with the different game developers depending on the specific game technology and the skill sets of the talent needed to develop computer-simulated games for the purpose of sharpening skill sets and also for skills assessment. One such project is the Blood Transfusion Game.
Nurses in Singapore have to undergo re-assessment every two years to refresh their knowledge on blood transfusion. Recognising that knowledge and skills can decline four to six months after training, the game provides learners the flexibility to access the simulation programme at a computer or laptop, without the need for physical manikins or a scheduled class limited to a handful of learners at a time.
The game is played by a single user, with one to supporting characters assisting the player (learner) in various realistic clinical scenarios. The aim is to retrain, strengthen and assess competency of nurses.
At the end of each session, the game displays a score that can be used as an assessment tool. Performance is scored based on the player’s knowledge, technical skills, appropriateness of actions taken and leadership abilities shown while interacting with other characters assisting the player.
