Quick Escapes to Building the Team

Sarah Bosserman Matulewicz, MSN, RN, CNOR, Perioperative Clinical Nurse Educator, WellSpan Health York Hospital

Building a culture of performance and highly reliable teamwork requires challenging the traditional educational methodologies. More than half of Americans believe they learn more effectively through hands-on learning than lecture-based education, as lecture-based education lacks multimodal educational delivery opportunities. The use of gamification through escape rooms offers a measurable and positive emotional tool for learning and enhancing teamwork and communication. This presentation will engage the learner in a discussion and hands-on demonstration of how escape room gamification can be used as an effective educational model in the healthcare setting.
