Genomics is changing the way healthcare will be delivered and requires a workforce that is ready to embrace and deliver a genomic service across the NHS. The Genomics Game is an interactive board game designed to start a conversation about genomics for healthcare staff who may not be confident in discussing topics associated with this area of healthcare.
This educational resource is intended to complement other learning activities. It has been developed for trainee Nursing Associates and pre-registration nurses, but is also suitable for any healthcare professional group as an introduction to genomics. For registered nurses, the playing of the game can be used as a participatory learning activity for revalidation.
Content has been aligned to the Nursing Associate curriculum framework and the Nursing and Midwifery Council standards for competence for registered nurses. The game will also align with the new NMC standards of proficiency for registered nurses, which will be published in spring 2018.
The game has been designed so that it can be played without a facilitator, or form part of a structured teaching session or workshop. See our suggested session plan incorporating the game.
4-12 players, divided into 2 teams.
Suitable for all primary care staff, particularly those working with rare disease and cancer patients.
