A Serious Game to train healthcare professionals in ethical medical decision-making


ETHICGAME is a 3-year project, funded by Horizon 2020. It aims to develop tools in the format of serious games for continuous education and training of health care staff in medical ethics.

MindBytes’ contribution to this project is to

  • combine concepts from game research, pedagogical research and philosophical ethics, in a scientifically rigorous approach towards designing serious games on morality and ethical decision-making
  • to assess and validate the usability, effectiveness and impact of the games on learning objectives and other relevant outcomes, in two pilots in Italy and Sweden, involving medical students
