To use one of IGI Global’s recently released titles as an example of how we tend to hit roadblocks with classification and discoverability. Explain how there are two dimensions to this publication, the healthcare delivery standpoint as well as the design and development perspective. That this research would benefit both a medical practitioner as well as game developers.

Topics Covered in the Publication:
- Assessment of Games
- Design and Development
- Games for Rehabilitation
- Games for Therapy
- Training in the Healthcare Sector
“Serious Games for Healthcare: Applications and Implications will introduce the development and application of game technologies for health-related serious games. Further, it provides cutting-edge academic research and industry updates which will inform readers about the current and future advances in the area. Encapsulating the knowledge of commercial and noncommercial researchers, developers, and practitioners in a single volume will benefit not only the research and development community within this field, but could also serve public health interests by improving awareness and outcomes.”
