The Safe Pharmacy Simulation game is an open educational resource (OER) developed by a team of interprofessional educators to promote employment integration of internationally educated health professionals by building their work readiness skills. It provides learners of any profession working in a medication dispensing setting with opportunities to develop and apply safety-focused best practices for processing and dispensing medications.
Game players are invited to make decisions in a realistic work situation and encouraged to try different approaches. Feedback is provided to promote analysis of players’ actions and decisions. Players are encouraged to self-reflect and debrief at the end of the game to further enhance their learning.
Funding for this project has been generously provided by Immigration, Refugees and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
