Medical Library Pilot Project: RELM Phase 3: Research and Evid Literacy in Medicine CME Game for Physicians

This collaboration between the Health Sciences Library and School of Medicine at the University of Washington aims to increase the digital research knowledge skills of physicians, especially clinical faculty in the five-state WWAMI region, by development of an online game that teaches physicians how to practice evidence-based medicine using game-based learning. In phase III of the project, a game developer will finish building the game reflecting suggestions gathered via formative evaluation conducted in phases I and II. The focus of this final phase will be adding game graphics, integrating the case-based scenarios into game play, and improving touch technology for optimized play on tablet computers. The efficacy of the game in teaching Evidence Based Medicine will be evaluated by UW School of Medicine MIDM students, physicians and residents through pre and post-game surveys.
