  • This educational board game is designed to deliver and test knowledge around medication errors and drug calculations. It helps staff involved in dispensing or administering drugs to be more aware of the risks of medication errors, while learning practical tips to reduce errors. Most medication errors are avoidable, and the Drug Round Game helps improve knowledge, confidence and numercy with the aim of reducing errors.

    Two teams play against each other answering questions, discussing their answers and learning from each other. Landing on a special “tablet” square lets players practise making drug calculations and improving their numeracy skills.

     

    Topics covered in the game include:

    • Types of medication error
    • Causes of medication errors
    • Administering medications
    • Drugs in mental health
