Can Games Improve Health Literacy?
Presented by Brielle Coronet, Librarian and Researcher
Date: Saturday, May 1, 2010
Time: 8:00am and 1:00pm SLT
45 minutes with demo
Location: The Sojourner Auditorium, Virtual Ability Island
http://slurl.com/secondlife/Virtual%20Ability/56/169/23

Discussion and demonstration of interactive health quiz games in Second Life. This project is part of a real life study to determine the effectiveness of gaming upon consumer health knowledge, health care behavior and decisions. The interactive quizzes were created by a Medical Librarian and clinical advisory team to improve Consumer Health Literacy by raising awareness about the signs and symptoms of heart attack, stroke and common medical terminology.

Every 20 seconds someone has a heart attack in the United States. Every 40 seconds someone has a stroke. Yet despite current educational campaigns, over 90 million American adults still struggle with low health literacy. This impacts every aspect of peoples’ lives and costs the health care industry millions of extra dollars a year.

Presentation in Voice and text simultaneously. Presentation will be followed by Q&A and the chance to interact with the study exhibits, including quiz boards.

Estoy preparando con Matías una presentación para la Semana de la Biblioteca en UPR-RCM  del  Prototipo de alfabetización en salud para poblaciones hispanas en Second Life™  que hemos diseñado.

En la búsqueda de información he encontrado la presentación que ofreció Elisabeth Jacobsen / Brielle Coronet en SL para  la conferencia a principios de este año The Future is Now: Libraries & Museums in Virtual Worlds, 2010.   Comparto este estudio de alfabetización en salud con  juegos en línea en el sitio web y el mundo virtual de Second Life para mejorar el conocimiento sobre los signos y síntomas de accidente cerebrovascular, ataque cardiaco o para mejorar la comprensión de la terminología médica común.
