“On call: antibiotics”- development and evaluation of a serious antimicrobial prescribing game for hospital care
Improved antimicrobial prescribing is a key effort to reduce the impact of increasing antimicrobial resistance.

Serious games have been proposed to improve clinical practice and may serve to resolve some of the behavioural and social barriers influencing prescribing.
