The Priorities Game

The game is based around questions which stimulate discussions.

How does it work?

Players take on roles as members of ward staff. Before the shift ends, they must achieve a target number of admissions and discharges and also manage ongoing patient care. As the shift progresses, events occur, and tasks need to be completed – players must work together to make decisions, prioritise duties and use their role-specific skills and authority to complete patient care tasks.

The Priorities Game helps students and newly qualified nurses to develop skills in:

  • Collaboration
  • Communication
  • Clinical reasoning
  • Decision making
  • Prioritisation
  • Leadership
  • Delegation

Facilitation of learning

Expert facilitation is not essential to use the game.

However, nurses involved in facilitation of learning (clinical educators, nursing mentors, ward managers) will find this a useful tool, both for student training and for qualified nurses in practice.
