Serious games for self-management

Stefan Hoffman of Serious Games Solutions, Potsdam, Germany, explains his work package as part of the iManageCancer project, which is responsible for designing a set of serious games to support patients with cancer. These will be made for both adults and children.

iManageCancer, or ‘Empowering patients and strengthening self-management in cancer diseases’, will team serious games up with the latest in self-management technology to empower people living with cancer.

Now the project has been running for a year, he explains what this Work Package (7) is hoping to achieve and why, what has been done so far and how this relates to the rest of the project.

He also looks at which other partners he works with on this, plus the challenges they’ve encountered.
