Possible Benefits of Gamification for Improving Surgical Patients' Quality of Care

The project explores the potential benefits of gamification from the perspective of surgical patients quality of care.


There is little published data on gamifying the work of healthcare professionals even though the use of serious games in healthcare has been growing. Gamification of healthcare workers daily work routines could have positive effects on nurses ownership and the meaningfulness of their work, and on the prevention and management of complications, which would in turn improve the quality of care for surgical patients.
