Introducing our new range of healthcare board games
Ashtons now stocks educational healthcare board games, which are an innovative new training method to help improve learning and development in your frontline staff.
Board game topics include Drug Rounds, Care Certificate, Communication and Infection Control
How do the board games help train staff?
The healthcare board games are designed to help improve patient safety and the quality of care in your hospital, by giving staff the knowledge, skills, and confidence they need to improve the way they work.
Developed with leading practitioners and academics, these evidence-based games are collaborative and encourage discussion and friendly debate between players.
These healthcare board games help facilitate effective training of staff through:
- A variety of learning techniques including question and scenario cards and interactive CDs
- Games that encourage discussion and friendly debate between staff
- Games to increase competency for staff at all levels, from Nurses and Doctors to Support Workers and Receptionists
The games are self-supporting and can be standalone or used as part of workshops and blended learning programmes – everything you need for a group session is in the box!
