Emergency Medicine Board Game

Emergency medicine faculty and medical students have designed a unique new board game called GridlockED, which is designed to be an educational tool to help future doctors learn system approaches to multi-patient management in a safe, low-stakes environment.  In the game, players work together to treat and prioritize patients.  The goal is to take care of as many patients as possible, manage an eight-hour shift and maximize points.  Key students involved are from the Niagara Regional Campus of the MGD School of Medicine.  Proceeds from the game will support research initiatives in emergency medicine at McMaster.
