Learning can be fun! Educational board game afternoon in the Learning Centre

We’re running an educational board game afternoon on the 20th August from 2-3.30pm in the Learning Centre at RSH, and this is open to all staff and students from the organisations that we serve.

Three different games will be available:

  • Sepsis Game (Raise awareness of sepsis and improve recognition and management of sepsis)
  • Infection Control (Recognise and manage an infection outbreak in a hospital ward)
  • Drug Round Game (Understand, recognise and minimise medication errors)

Whilst these are fun, they are also an active learning tool shown to improve knowledge, and provoke discussion in a safe environment. Library staff will be on hand to facilitate the games, and we invite you to come along and play!

We have space for up to 12 people per game (two teams of up to six) and if you’d like to come, please contact me, Jason Curtis (jason.curtis@sath.nhs.uk or 01743 492511), and say which game you’d like to play.

We’ll provide some biscuits, and hot drinks will be available for sale for £1 each. We’ll provide certificates for all participants for you to put towards your revalidation/CPD requirements.

We look forward to some challenging games!
