This session will illustrate the process of developing, piloting, and implementing interactive computer games and simulations designed to assist working professionals in meeting the challenges of public health preparedness. Critical partnerships with creative arts and technology specialists, target users, and others will be identified. Presenters will demonstrate the use of the virtual training space Play2Train in a massive multiplayer environment, as well as the Disaster at Franklin County program. They will also share lessons learned from implementations and evaluations.
