A flexible, reusable learning resource
With 250+ question cards across 6 key topics, The Renal Game is a flexible and engaging way for student and qualified health professionals to develop and test their knowledge of physiology, anatomy and biochemistry of the renal system. Players move through the nephron, discussing and answering questions based around what happens in each part of the nephron:
- Proximal Tubule
- Loop of Henle
- Distal Tubule
- Collecting Duct
- Antidiuretic Hormone (ADH)
The person organising the game session can choose a selection of cards from each pack which best suit the group playing or use all of the card for a full exploration of the renal system. With lots of cards to choose from, the game can be used repeatedly by the same group by choosing a different selection of cards for each session.
Maurya Cushlow, Executive Chief Nurse at Newcastle Hospitals, said:
“As a trust we actively encourage our staff to come forward with innovative ideas on how to improve our service, and the Renal Game is a perfect example of this. It will certainly help our students and staff to engage in training, and hopefully it will become a vital addition to learning in other healthcare organisations throughout the UK.”
