  • ZeST replicates the benefits of face-to-face games in a simple web-based tool that anyone can use. It does not require any training or special technology.

    ZeST games are designed to be played during group meetings on Zoom, Skype, Teams, WebEx. There is no direct link between ZeST and these meetings platforms. The facilitator just shares their ZeST screen with the group.

    The actual games are designed to be very simple to manage allowing the facilitator to concentrate on encouraging and maintaining group discussions.

    ZeST games will help you to recreate the energy and discussions you’d get during a face-to-face game.

    A single licence gives you unrestricted access to a specific game on the ZeST platform for 12 months. A single licence allows one online game session to be run at any time. However, you can invite as many participants as you wish to each session and you can organise as many back-to-back game sessions as you need. You can also purchase additional licenses.

  • 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
    • Making drug calculations
    • Practical advice to reduce errors
