The Dilemma Game is a practical tool designed to better prepare hearing healthcare professionals to deal with difficult clinical situations.The game consists of a series of dilemmas that describe a challenging clinical scenario. Three possible solutions are given with the understanding that the ‘perfect’ solution might not exist. With no right or wrong answers, the game encourages reflection, critical thinking and analysis of the potential consequences of a practitioner’s choices on a client. Players use problem-solving skills to make decisions based on a thoughtful analysis of the situation and the individuals involved.
The Dilemma Game is developed for use with colleagues, within a larger training group, in student training or as an individual exercise. The dilemma cards are also applicable for role playing and other learning exercises. Developed in collaboration with Ida Institute seminar participants, the dilemmas are based on actual clinical situations.
