Using Gaming & Gamification in Clinical Practice

Using Gaming & Gamification in Clinical Practice | Digitized Health | Scoop.it

What does “gamification” mean, and what is its relevance to mental health practice?  In this video of a conversation I had at University at Buffalo with Charles Syms, I take a stab at answering those questions.  This is just a start, and hopefully by the end of the video you can begin to see how applying principles of game design could be therapeutic for people dealing with issues ranging from trauma to executive functioning challenges to substance abuse and beyond.

Is Wikipedia’s medical content really 90% wrong? | The Cochrane Collaboration

Is Wikipedia’s medical content really 90% wrong? | The Cochrane Collaboration | Digitized Health | Scoop.it

The journal article by Hasty et al. published on 1 May 2014 claims that most Wikipedia articles on important medical topics contain a large number of errors. The claim is based on a study of ten articles as they appeared on 25 April 2012. In nine of these the authors noted differences from a peer-reviewed source. The popular press, including the UK’s Daily Mail and BBC News, and the US-based Advisory Board, fueled by interviews with Hasty, has taken this to mean that as much as 90% of Wikipedia's medical content is wrong. However, we found that Hasty et al. used an unvalidated test of content quality and applied it to Wikipedia alone. Additionally, there were significant errors in study design and data analysis, and the authors' conclusions are not supported by the results.
