6 Ways Serious Games Improve Clinical Learning Outcomes

Growing evidence shows a significant link between repetitive practice, content retention, and academic performance—which is why forward-thinking healthcare educators are looking for concrete ways to jumpstart learners’ comprehension, intuition, and long-term retention abilities. Designed to primarily educate and secondarily entertain, serious games and gamified learning environments place users in an environment where “play” leads to [...]
