SGH & PWS Team win an award in the SIMS Games challenge 2019

A team consisting of Nurses from Singapore General Hospital, Ang Shin Yuh, Quek Li Ting, Ivy Goh Hui Qi, Nur Fidtria Binte Sahta,  & Sean Padman Israfil McMenamin, Siddharth Jain, Paul de Leon from Playware Studios, won 3rd Prize in the SIMS Games Challenge 2019.

The SGH Infusion Pump training series is a set of games revolving around training nurses on using an Infusion Pump in a variety of situations. Combining scenario-based learning with simulation, the nurses will have to play out a day in the ward each time, reacting to situations accordingly and appropriately – and breach of processes is taken very seriously!

At the heart of these games is the Infusion Pump; nurses will get to operate an almost fully-simulated version of the device, increasing both their familiarity and proficiency with it by allowing them to browse the drug library and carry out the functions that they will face on a day-to-day basis in real life.

About the Challenge:
