Use of an online spaced-education game to study top 200 drugs in a skills laboratory course

In the previous journal club, we discussed about scientific capability of a pharmacist and the items that a pharmacist must master about drugs; as brand and generic name, dosage form, usual dosing ranges and mechanisms of action. Then it was discussed that can we really learn this information via current educational methods? The answer was no.

The proposed method for solving the learning problem was spaced-education.

Spaced learning is a learning strategy in which highly considered learning content is repeated three times, with two 10-minute breaks during which distractor activities are performed by the students.

Afterwards, the game introduced in the article was elucidated and at the end, according to the personal studies and experiences, a new idea, including old and new methods was presented.
