I created this game for the unit on Communication. My students love playing "Mad Gab" and I wanted to create a version of phrases that would commonly be said by patients.
This download includes two ways to play the game:
- A PowerPoint Game (View the YouTube Video clip below to see a sampling)
- A Worksheet (Answer Key included)
The game includes 20 unique phrases that will certainly make your students laugh as well as generate good discussion on how it can relate to working with communication barriers in healthcare. Use as a daily warm-up, hook to a unit on Communications or just as a way to break the monotony of a typical day.
In both the game and worksheet, I explain the following:
"Often in healthcare it is tough to understand our patients. They may have speech impairments, speak a different language, be scared/hurting or just not feel like talking or communicating. Although this game is designed to be witty and not accurate to the actual communication barriers you may experience, the goal is to make you think about how to overcome obstacles and persevere through the frustrations and difficulties."
