The aim of the PETRHA Serious Game is to create a universal language between the physiotherapists from the various European countries and improve their skills in clinical reasoning.
During 5 days, teachers and students from the Public University of Navarre, the Polytechnic Institute of Porto and the IRFSS Aquitaine of the French Red Cross gathered in Tudela in Navarre to test the pilot version of the game. Every day, students played the game and discussed together the possible improvements for the final version that will be presented at the European Petrha Cup in Bordeaux this October. Despite the different cultures, languages and points of view, the group overcame those barriers and worked as one. The team shared ideas and knowledge in order to enhance items of the game such as the interface, design, scoring system, clinical cases and rules.
This testing phase unfolded in a great atmosphere. Together they discovered the Navarre culture by walking through the Bardenas Reales desert, visiting Tudela, eating Pintxos and also tasting local cañas and patxaran.
The group hopes that all the PETRHA events will share the same spirit!
