Prospects for Simulation Gaming in Health Planning & Consumer Health Education.
Doob, P. A.
This paper explores a technique, simulation gaming, used by management and by planning educators in several fields for approaching some of the elements of human relations matters and concepts. It seeks to survey the development of this method by tracing the development of the simulation gaming technique in symbolic simulation. Some of its utilities and liabilities are then identified. Simulation game topology is discussed, after which the educational and research potential of this gaming method is examined together with simulation game artifacts, cautions, and remedies for educational and research applications. Applications of the technique to health planning and consumer health education objectives generally are suggested, and a health maintenance game structure is outlined. The game model focuses on problem areas most specifically relevant for those in the comprehensive health planning sphere, rather than limited to health planning education applications per se. References conclude the work. (BL)
