How to prevent an outbreak of MRSA, Highly resistant bacteria, Influenza, or Norovirus? Learn how to fight bacteria and viruses! As a GGD employee, when you have to deal with people who are ill it is extremely important that you are aware of the how to prevent an outbreak of microorganisms. GGD Twente (Municipal Health Service) wants to improve awareness of different infection prevention measures that are necessary to prevent the spread of microorganisms. Serious Gaming is ideally suited for this!
This is why GGD Twente asked MAD Multimedia to develop a serious game in order to learn about these infection prevention measures in a playful way. After a successful collaboration this resulted in “Infectionary”, a game in which employees can learn which measures one should take beforehand and afterwards in different situations by answering questions in the game. And in which you’ll get the chance to fight the bacteria and viruses!
The aim of the game is to improve knowledge and awareness with respect to hygiene and infection prevention measures. The GGD Twente department Infectious Disease Control proactively stimulates healthcare institutions by the use of the game to get an active infection prevention policy. “Infectionary” is an innovative learning method, independent of place and time, preparing health personnel for cases that are sometimes very rare, but require adequate action.
Residential Care Home Friso (Woon- & Zorgcentrum Friso) is the first health care institution in the Twente region to implement this serious game as part of their active infection prevention policy. Read more about his on the website of GGD Twente.
