“I played the game and I have to say it was brilliant fun and very educational. I recommend everybody takes on the challenge.”
Dr. Stuart D’Arcy

“Our health board seeks to manage and reduce healthcare associated infection using the relevant national guidance and tool kits. Staff education is an extremely important aspect of this work… For very busy staff with multiple calls on their time… getting engagement for messages they may feel very familiar with can be a deal breaking challenge to the success of any educational intervention… However, Gareth has overcome this problem by inserting the educational message into a well-established (and therefore easily understood and quickly implemented) game format, with a genuinely humorous twist which grabs users’ attention: the combination of fun, interest, competition and humour delivers the teaching “holy grail” of audience engagement.”

“Gareth has designed this game to be an engaging game to educate staff about the importance of C. diff management and prevention. His enthusiasm has taken this game from a homemade prototype to now securing funding to have the game designed by a professional team… It has been an extremely innovative approach and has only been possible due to hard work and dedication to the task.”
