      Hi – Glad to hear from you… A couple of suggestions. Try looking at http://healthcaregames.wisc.edu/ – there is a good database & search engine there. Also try the linked in groups “Games and Simulation for Healthcare” and “Game Based Learning”. You might also try my textbook Game Based Teaching and Simulation for Nursing and Healthcare. The direct link can be found at: http://www.springerpub.com/product/9780826109699#.UetPlFO9w4a It is also available on amazon.com and many other websites – I am happy to continue our conversation

      Thank you for contacting Clinicalplayground.com
