Resilience Challenge takes the very technical, complex theory of organisational resilience and turns it into something fun and engaging.
Jennifer Jackson, academic lead
Collaborating with the Centre for Applied Resilience in Healthcare at King’s was a great opportunity for the team at Karman to learn about the challenges of a new industry. Our experience in working on a product that touches on both healthcare and education has helped us build confidence in eLearning, healthcare and research-related products.

It [the game] was actually very helpful. It made me realise that when I’m distracted while giving meds, yes, it’s annoying to me, but also affects my patients negatively. I started thinking, what habits have I picked up in my practice that are causing me to act unsafely.
Everyone is under some pressures and sometimes the easiest option is not the best or safest one to take. The game encourages you to stop and think before acting.
