Twenty three medical, nursing and allied health clinicians working in Australia(More)
This manuscript reports work on the first of several related projects in a series entitled " Adventures in Pedagogy ". Serious Computer Games and Applications on wireless devices connected to the Internet are commonly embedded into everyday clinical practice. Yet a review of the literature indicates a scarcity of such curricula in undergraduate medical(More)
