Roll to Save: Gaming Disease Response- How to Construct Wargames in Support of Public Health Professionals
Public health practitioners respond to a wide variety of disease events. Professional games place responders in situations where they face the decisions, conflicts, and challenges that they would experience in a real event. Playing professional games can help everyone understand the complex, inter-agency, challenges that often come up during these situations.
In this book we describe how to
design professional games for disease response.
We cover all forms of disease, from chronic and non-infectious
diseases to bio-terrorism events.
We intersperse discussions of game design with examples of games,
from games on mental health services to naturally occurring infectious
disease outbreaks. In addition
we discuss aspects of disease response that you need to understand in
order to avoid common pitfalls in designing these games.
