An Aging Game Simulation Activity for Allied Health Students
Douglass, Carolinda; Henry, Beverly W.; Kostiwa, Irene M.
Educational Gerontology, v34 n2 p124-135 Feb 2008
The Aging Game, a simulation activity, has been used successfully with medical students in the development of empathetic attitudes toward older adults. To date, the Aging Game has not been used extensively with allied health students. It has been viewed as too costly, time-consuming and labor-intensive. The purpose of this study was to examine the administrative feasibility of implementing a modified version of the Aging Game for use with allied health students. The study showed that the Aging Game can be easily modified for use with allied health students, and it can deliver positive results for improving empathetic attitudes toward older adults.
