Gamification in health
Time & Location
About the Event
Games are fun, experimental, challenging as well as powerful tools that have the potential to change the patients' behaviour, attitudes and improve their health. Join us to discuss the role of games in healthcare.
The discussion and presentations in this session will include a variety of gamified approaches to managing healthcare delivery from the patient wellbeing perspective as well as the management control of healthcare providers.
The following will be presented for interactive discussion 20 mins each (plus conversation and refreshments)
- Serious Games in Healthcare - Patient Mix Choices and the Case of Influenza: Gillian Vesty, Associate Professor, School of Accounting, RMIT
- Digital Innovations in Healthcare - Connected Health Solutions Professor Minna Pikkarainen - Professor of Connected Health, Oulu University Finland
- Clinical Trials and the use of gamification in patient journeys - Doctor Miia Jansson - Clinical Scientist, Oulu University Hospital
We have a little fund to make our events more accessible (woop woop!)
If for any reason there are barriers to engaging in the community we invite anyone to apply for up to $50 (but ask for more if you need, worth a try) per person per event to cover personal costs to improve this. The money can cover just about anything, including but not limited to child/other care, taxis if travelling around is tricky, trains if you live out in the countryside, a live-captioner, recording of the event or loss of earnings if you have a side job along your studies. Who are we to judge! If you feel it’s a barrier, we agree too. Find out more
