Abstract:

This Annual Progress Report is provided in accordance with the contract CDRL for the 2 months of development that occurred during this reporting period. According to the Institute of Medicine IOM, up to 690,000 patients are injured by medical errors each year. Up to 98,000 of which will die from those errors. For the Navy, the causes of these errors are exacerbated by lengthy deployments and reentry training. We will design, develop, and deliver a prototype game-based trainer for perioperative teams by leveraging scientific discoveries made on prior ONR efforts related to the effectiveness of game-based trainers.
