Abstract

This chapter discusses (1) what is required to design games that are ethical and (2) the integration of ethico-legal perspectives related to the learning outcomes in the design of serious games for healthcare training, and the challenges around both these goals. An interdisciplinary perspective is taken and evidence from medicine, healthcare, psychology, and computer science is applied in discussing the identified issues and in developing recommendations for future research and development.
