Improving staff’s hand hygiene compliance through gamification
|Because bacterial contamination cannot be seen with the naked eye, the hospital’s staff members were not strictly adhering to proper hand hygiene practices. The hospital therefore needed a unique training strategy to emphasize the importance of hand hygiene and change the behavior of its staff. A virtual reality-based, gamified learning experience engaged the staff with a visual impression of bacterial cross-contamination in a real-life situation.
The hospital hand hygiene compliance rates remained below 50% despite previous attempts at training and auditing methods, causing the hospital to experience increased rates of AMR.
Our engaging virtual-reality game allowed users to experience and understand the spread of antimicrobial resistance when the correct procedures are not followed.
