Université Paris Descartes: Asthma prescription commentary
With over 4000 students enrolled, the faculty of pharmaceutical and biological sciences is one of ten units making up the Paris Descartes University and the one that, in France, has the largest number of students. In addition to the theoretical training given in traditional lessons, the University was looking for a way for students to come face to face with the practical reality of their future profession and their ability to use their knowledge to recognise patients’ actual state of health, so that they will be ready to play their role as health care professionals.
Idées-3Com therefore developed a Learning Game in which the student is placed in the role of a pharmacist who receives several types of asthma patients in their pharmacy. The student must complete the four steps of treating a patient, taking care not to vary the risk level too much!
