Promoting infection control through gamification

A multinational pharmaceutical company aimed to promote antimicrobial stewardship and educate frontline healthcare providers on the best practices in infection control. The company’s representatives were in regular contact with senior doctors and consultants in various hospitals and, based on their rapport, opted for a gamified, competitive learning approach.

The company needed a way to help hospitals incorporate the right infection control practices and instill an emphasis on antimicrobial stewardship in their registrars and nurses.



Based on a study of the key personality traits of the doctors and nurses, we designed a game that accounted for their different approaches to solving problems and adhering to protocol.

Players had to choose between guiding a character to follow the best practices or allowing a lapse in protocol. Participation in the game enabled HCPs to understand and engage with the consequences of their choices.
