This App Helps Doctors Talk To Families About Obesity

Posted by @DanHinmon, Nov 22, 2016

Change Talk 2.0, a role-playing game developed by the app maker Kognito, is intended to help doctors practice having sensitive conversations with patients.

After downloading the app, doctors and medical students enter into a hypothetical clinical scenario, pose a question, and then get feedback from a virtual family about the interaction.

The newly released second version of the app is focused on childhood obesity and also includes scenarios related to breastfeeding and healthy snacking habits.

Can you see a use for this at your hospital?
