The authors tested the use of a policy management game in which participants act as incident commanders with the goal of teaching them how to quickly evacuate an emergency site, to minimize the number of fatalities at the incident site, and to decrease patients’ waiting time for treatment. Participants rated the game favorably, and improvement in their skills was observed, although there were differences in performance across the different groups (students, practitioners, and researchers).
