Intervention studies with the conflict/challenge attribute particularly used competition (n = 21). (2014). Koivisto, J. M., Multisilta, J., Niemi, H., Katajisto, J., & Eriksson, E. (2016). (2013). Consequently, the current research status is too limited to provide educators with evidence-based recommendations on when and how specific game elements should be applied. 2011; Gerard et al. An online spaced-education game among clinicians improves their patients’ time to blood pressure control a randomized controlled trial. The process and rewards must be driven by outcomes. Richey Smith, C. E., Ryder, P., Bilodeau, A., & Schultz, M. (2016). We formulated five principal research questions that guided this systematic review: What are the contexts in which game elements are used in health sciences education? Advances in Physiology Education, 40(4), 454–457. Adv Physiol Educ [Internet]., 38(3), 277–8. Simulation and Gaming, 45, 752–768. Worldviews on Evidence-Based Nursing, 13(4), 285–293. In Lecture Notes in Computer Science (Including Subseries Lecture Notes in Artificial Intelligence and Lecture Notes in Bioinformatics). There are a multitude of programs that helps teach material, study tool, and aids in the absorption of information. Two studies stood out for the way in which they used theory to explain the effect of a single game attribute. This review focused on empirical evidence for the effectiveness of gamification approaches and theoretical rationales for applying the chosen game attributes. The gamification market was estimated to be worth $5.5 billion in 2018. This shift in attention from task to competition might, therefore, come at the expense of students’ performance and even their intrinsic motivation to learn (Reeve and Deci 1996). For instance, points, badges, iPads and money are kinds of rewards and, therefore, confirmed as assessment attributes. We excluded articles that (a) only described the development of gamified learning activities in educational contexts without reporting the effects of their interventions, (b) only focused on qualitative data, (c) focused on serious games, (d) focused on patient education, (e) focused on simulations, except when the focus was on the effects of gamification in simulations (gamified simulations), (f) described adapted environments such as game-shows (e.g., “jeopardy” or “who wants to be a millionaire”) and board-games (e.g., “monopoly” or “trivial pursuit”) which we considered to be game contexts, and (g) were not written in Dutch or English. 50, Medical Education. Gamification in healthcare uses challenges, rewards, achievement badge, mastery levels, competitions to keep the users engaged and motivated in achieving their goals, which may range anywhere from chronic disease management to tracking the fitness regime. Assessing the learning potential of an interactive digital game versus an interactive-style didactic lecture: The continued importance of didactic teaching in medical student education. (2017). Designing attractive gamification features for collaborative storytelling websites. That this outcome was not found in the other three studies might be attributed to a shift in attention as explained before. In addition, high-quality clarification studies on how underlying mechanisms could explain the observed effects are uncommon in gamified learning research. improved performance would be achieved by letting students identify discrepancies in their knowledge through upward comparison or validate their assumptions on knowledge through downward comparison (Van Nuland et al. Gamification in education for kids and children was so common but nowadays everyone needs motivation and entertainment. Medical Journal of the Islamic Republic of Iran, 31, 52. Further studies are needed to quantify objective data on the effects of gamification on clinical knowledge retention among adult learners in health care professions. Gamification based on Social Comparison Theory involved the introduction of leader boards. (2011). 2013; De Sousa Borges et al. 2017), it was assumed that incorporating gamification into courses could enhance students’ experience and, therefore, their reflection on and conceptualization of that experience (Kolb et al. Disability and Rehabilitation, 38, 2244–2254. PLoS ONE, 9(1), e85434. Who coined the term “gamification”? We extracted the following data from the included articles using the extraction methods described in the AMEE guideline (Sharma et al. 2017; Seaborn and Fels 2015). 2018; Lim and Seet 2008; Stanley and Latimer 2011; Webb and Henderson 2017). The global healthcare gamification market is … Comparing a group of participants who took part in a gamified learning activity with a group of participants who did not take part in any learning activity is an example of a confounded comparison (Adami and Cecchini 2014). Singapore Nurs J [Internet]., 40(3), 21–6. Nurse Educ Today [Internet]., 32(6), 714–20. Flow chart of the article selection process. (2014). Part of Springer Nature. Mind. 2015). Looking at healthcare in particular, gamification can take the form of simulations, virtual reality (VR) constructs and games designed with educational purposes in mind. The search was performed in April 2018. The game consisted of a board depicting a mitochondrion and cards representing components of the mitochondrial electron transport chain that had to be put in the right order. Some of the 52 game elements and attributes were omitted from the search as they were too broad and generated a huge amount of hits (e.g., ‘environment’, ‘scarcity’, ‘consequences’), irrelevant hits or as they did not generate any hits (e.g. Oxford English Dictionary. 2013; Dankbaar et al. Game play … Br J Surg. For instance, a combination of conflict and challenge attributes was relatively more often applied to digital contexts (24 out of 28 digital studies) than to analogue contexts (3 out of 14 analogue studies). Uncertainty about inclusion or exclusion of 20 other articles (Bigdeli and Kaufman 2017; Boysen et al. Klabbers, J. H. G. (2009). What game elements are tested and what attributes do they represent? The healthcare domain has seen a rapid ascent of the adoption of gamification and serious games in health self-monitoring and management. 2008). Procedia-Social and Behavioral Sciences, 2, 3483–3488. 2016; McCoy et al. Google Scholar. 2014; Petrucci et al. (2016). Who doesn't like getting something for free? Kolb, D. A., Boyatzis, R. E., & Mainemelis, C. (2001). Kow, A. W. C., Ang, B. L. S., Chong, C. S., Tan, W. B., & Menon, K. R. (2016). (2012). In addition, we did not set a timeframe for our search since individual game elements were used in a non-game context long before the term “gamification” was coined. Egger, M., Zellweger-Zähner, T., Schneider, M., Junker, C., Lengeler, C., & Antes, G. (1997). 1977; Møllerand and Jennions 2001) and that negative results remain un- or underreported. In the modern world with short attention spans, this is one of the most important tools to use in the education sector. Festinger, L. (1954). Gamification in theory and action: A survey.

However, game-design techniques and solutions can be employed to create the simulated reality and the experience of something real (Alessi 1988; Jacobs and Dempsey 1993). 2018). It was altered by Landers (2014) for gamification purposes and was now—at least to our knowledge—used for the first time to systematically structure gamification studies.

For instance, further research could illuminate whether increased repetition results in less positive learning outcomes when students’ attention is distracted from their learning task by one or more game attributes. 2017), out of which two were confounded by poor design (Table 1; asterisks). Van Nuland et al. Journal of Computer Based Instruction, 15, 40–47. 2018). Landers, R. N., Bauer, K. N., Callan, R. C., & Armstrong, M. B. Each theory will be discussed briefly below, with specific attention to how these theories can be linked to game elements. 2014; Petrucci et al. Gamification — the use of game-like scenarios for teaching or training purposes — is trending. Borro-Escribano, B., Martínez-Alpuente, I., Blanco, A. Del, Torrente, J., Fernández-Manjón, B., & Matesanz, R. (2013). The Labor Games: A Simulation-Based Workshop Teaching Obstetrical Skills to Medical Students [2B]. Assessment and conflict/challenge attributes were often applied together (n = 24), predominantly in the form of leader boards displaying rank orders of participants, thus enabling comparison of students’ achievements. 2015). Yet, we tried to include as many relevant articles as possible by basing our search on a list of 52 game elements and Lander’s framework (Landers 2014; Marczewski 2017). Customer-relations skills are also required, as it may be necessary to help patients or staff understand and troubleshoot their applications. Get in the game: How communicators can leverage gamification. Computers in Human Behavior, 39, 371–380. However, in case of uncertainties, the entire team was involved in the decision-making process and we undertook double screening on a 10% random sample of the excluded articles as a form of triangulation. Gamification in healthcare is not only for medical wellness but is also used for various other purposes: 1. Graafland M, Schraagen JM, Schijven MP. Personality and Social Psychology Bulletin, 22, 24–33. Englewood Cliffs, New Jersey: Educational Technology Publications. Gamification of board review: a residency curricular innovation. We used the Medical Education Research Study Quality Instrument (MERSQI) to measure the methodological quality of the selected studies (Reed et al. Using a virtual game to enhance simulation based learning in nursing education. According to Van Nuland et al. Perrotta, C., Featherstone, G., Aston, H., & Houghton, E. (2013). Gamification is rapidly becoming a trend in health professions education. Some recent and future developments include: Micro-Learning and Gaming. (2015). 165–186. These platforms and techniques draw on the tropes and structures of video games, but employ them in a more focused educational context. 1993). Gamification, which takes many of the benefits of gaming and uses them in multiple business-world applications, may hold the answer, says Lea Sorrentino, Senior Digital Strategist at HealthStream partner and gamification solution provider Bunchball. American Journal of Pharmaceutical Education, 80(8), 139. 2007). One study focused on the level of health care outcome (Kerfoot et al. Hsu, S. H., Chang, J.-W., & Lee, C.-C. (2013). In The 6th International Conference on Virtual Learning ICVL 2011, Vol. Therefore, the characteristic difference between gamification and serious games lies in their design intention. 2011; Szyma 2014), we did not set a timeframe for our search since individual game elements were used in a non-game context long before the term “gamification” was coined and appeared in scientific literature. Can J Cardiol [Internet]., 28(5), S102. BMC Med Educ., 15(1). Medical Education, 51(11), 1169–1170. We calculated individual total MERSQI scores, mean scores and standard deviations. 323–329. He and his colleagues define gamification as the use of game elements (e.g. International Journal of Educational Technology in Higher Education, 14, 9. 2015; Lister et al. From Fun to Fit: Gamification in Healthcare. Jacobs, J. W., & Dempsey, J. V. (1993). Mekler, E. D., Brühlmann, F., Tuch, A. N., & Opwis, K. (2017). Advances in Health Sciences Education Davidson, S.

But you might be surprised … Cureus., 9(9), e1699. (2014). Börgers, T., & Sarin, R. (1997). 2012; Klabbers 2009). Satisfaction rates are generally high and positive changes in behaviour and learning have been reported. This means that even though designers, researchers and teachers may have the intention to not create a game and to only use game-elements, a participants’ view of whether it actually is a game can be quite different, depending on his or her background. The grasshopper: Games, life and Utopia, Bernard suits. Med Educ., 47(5), 524–5. Gamification refers to using game attributes in a non-gaming context.

Social comparison : Motives, standards, and mechanisms. rewards, leader boards and social elements (Petrucci et al. Septris and SICKO: implementing and using learning analytics and gamification in medical education. Gruder, C. L. (1971). The purpose of this systematic review was to provide a comprehensive overview of the use and effectiveness of gamification in health professions education and to add to the existing research on gamification in several ways. How gamification motivates: An experimental study of the effects of specific game design elements on psychological need satisfaction. Most of the included studies (n = 25; Table 1) were descriptive in nature in such sense that they focused on observation and described what was done, without using comparison groups. No negative effects of using gamification were observed. First, although various definitions of gamification can be found in various fields of literature such as business, education and information technology (Blohm and Leimeister 2013; Burke 2014; Burkey et al. G57(P) Gamification: Student feedback and creation of bespoke board games. Abstract Background: There is a worldwide shortage of health workers, and this issue requires innovative education solutions. Rewards varied considerably and included digital trophies, donuts, iPads and money. Caponetto, I., Earp, J., & Ott, M. (2014). BMC Medical Education, 17(1), 30. In fact, adopting and testing a combination of game elements without being able to disentangle their individual effects on learning is a quite general phenomenon in gamification research in health professions education. Fidelity in the design of instructional simulations. Gamification techniques can be employed not just in professional training settings, but also in everyday life. Second, this intention is different from the intention in serious games, which are defined as games (in their various forms) in which education is the primary goal, rather than entertainment (Susi et al. 52 gamification mechanics and elements. Promoting a healthy lifestyle. 2015; Van Dongen et al. Future research should clarify mechanisms underlying gamified educational interventions and explore theories that could explain the effects of these interventions on learning outcomes, using well-defined control groups, in a longitudinal way. There are a number of ways in which using gamification can improve the process of training healthcare workers. European Journal of Dental Education, 22(1), 15–22. Vol. Impact of the Geriatric Medication Game® on nursing students’ empathy and attitudes toward older adults. Application of game-like simulations in the Spanish Transplant National Organization. In addition, we hand-searched the reference lists of included articles and citations for additional articles. The “simulation roulette” game. The majority of the included studies—only quantitative and mixed-methods studies—were performed in medical schools in the USA and Canada, and used digital technologies to develop and implement gamified teaching and learning. This study had several limitations. Technological savvy is required to leverage the most recent innovations and stay up to date on how gamification techniques are evolving. The purpose of theory is to generate hypotheses, predict (learning) outcomes and explain underlying mechanisms. However, the timing of the rewards (e.g., immediate versus delayed rewards) as well as the context of the rewards (e.g., negative or positive feedback) might have a different impact on the outcomes (Ashby and O’Brien 2007; Bermudez and Schultz 2014; Butler et al. 1997) and Deliberate Practice Theory (Butt et al. (2017). 1997). Journal of Experimental Psychology: Applied, 13, 273. At first glance, it may seem that improved or unchanged academic performance (e.g. A randomized controlled trial.

After retrieving the search results from different databases, AvG removed the duplicates and uploaded the remaining articles to Rayyan, a mobile and web-based application developed for systematic reviews (Ouzzani et al. “Constipation Challenge” game improves guideline knowledge and implementation. 2014; Dichev and Dicheva 2017; Dicheva et al. (1955). Important negative results should be reported as well. Clarification studies apply a theoretical framework to understand and possibly explain the processes underlying the observed effects, describe why and how interventions (i.e. Simulation and Gaming, 40, 446–463.
