Resuscitation Game: the game for neonatal resuscitation staff training

  1. 1. Resuscitation Game Training Game for Neonatal Resuscitation
  2. 2. Objectives and Scenario Through gameplay, Resuscitation Game integrates the present training program offering professionals a new, involving and unique experience, while respecting training standards suggested by international bodies. In an immersive virtual environment, professionals can experiment working procedures in a realistic way, however without risks, thanx to the protected environment. Moreover, the game is available anytime, anywhere guaranteeing continuous training and saving time and expenditure. * Effectiveness of e-simulation-based deliberate, distributed practice on the retention of knowledge and technical skills of resuscitation following structured neonatal resuscitation training (SGH, 2016). A running study conducted since 2016 by Singapore General Hospital (SGH) demonstrated that standard trainings enhance participants’ competencies considerably in the short term, but already after 3-5 months after the training, notions start to degrade until they disappear completely after 8 months*. For an efficient and constant update, ILCOR (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation) recommends since 2015 that all professionals involved in neonatal resuscitation attend training courses at least once a year with a consequent significant raise of NHS costs and a drastic productivity reduction in specialist departments.
  3. 3. Design Methodology Our design methodology for the Resuscitation Game foresaw 3 cyclic co-design phases with: • Medical Trainers: contents and scientific supervision; • Professionals (doctors and nurses): needs, expectations, motivational factors, usability and acceptance; • Multidisciplinary team imaginary: (psychologists, game designers, technical specialists, mathematicians) game design and development Resuscitation Game can be accessed by any PC with a recent browser. An immersive version for Oculus Rift is also available.
  4. 4. Innovate: Resuscitation Game The game consists of 2 parts: Training Game: playable by professionals in a variety of scenarios which can be customized by the supervisor according to the training objective of each single user. Each scenario represents a specific clinical case. Supervisor Station: from which the supervisor can set specific scenarios for each user and monitor results, choices and scores. The game architecture allows to add AI algorithms to change difficulty levels according to each user’s performance in the next versions. Watch the video on our YouTube channel and come back to the presentation.
  5. 5. Innovate: Resuscitation Game In a virtual resuscitation theatre professionals have to apply their competences and follow the game’s instructions to simulate an intervention in different phases: - Chose one of the neonatal scenarios/pathologies - Receive the virtual patient history - Create a team and prepare the instrumentation needed - Assemble the instrumentation and verify that it is operating correcty - Preparing the patient - Carry out resuscitation procedures When the newborn’s considtions are stable the procedure is completed. During a de-briefing, professionals can analyse their results with their supervisors, who access the «supervisor station».
  6. 6. In collaboration with Singapore General Hospital (SGH) Department of Neonatal & Developmental Medicine Adj Assoc. Prof Yeo Cheo Lian Senior Consultant Dr. Imelda Lustestica Ereno Senior Resident Physician Dr. Selina Ho Kah Ying Senior Consultant Dr Vina Canlas Tagamolila Resident Physician Integrated Health Information Systems (IHIS)
  7. 7. Engage: global! SGH Singapore, has a curricular training program involving yearly more than 2.000 professionals: doctors, nurses, midwifes and responsibles for technical instrumentation. To validate the Resuscitation Game as training instrument to be included in the official training program, SGH started a study foreseeing at least 80 users; more than 140 professionals (more than 7% of the entire population needing a yearly training) adhered to the call, deciding spontaneously to self-evaluate themselves with the game and to invest their own free time participating to this project. In Italy the game was already presented to the Società Italiana di Neonatologia (SIN) during their XXIII national congress in 2017.
  8. 8. Impact Data shows an enhancement in the retention time of theoretical concepts and of acquired practical competences. Given this result, Singapore General Hospital planned to enlarge the training offer to all professionals involved in neonatal resuscitation calculating the ROI: Target: 2.300 SGH staff yearly Saved time: 16 hrs person/year Average salary: S$ 28 tangible estimated saving: S$1,030,400/year (>645.000€/year). Further impact factors - reduction of time spent by medical trainers in a classroom for trainings - reduction of time dedicated to organisation and logistics - enhancement of the training offer thanx to the increasing number of different scenarios - enhancement of the practical competence level thanx to the simulations offered through the game
