“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.”
