There are two ways to get involved in the Who Sees What ? project.
1. You can come along to one of our consultation events if there’s one near you. At these events you’ll be able to meet with our specially trained facilitators, discuss the issues with other interested people and tell us how you want the system of electronic patient records to look. When we know where the games will take place, we’ll post them on the events page. For people living in the North West of England, we can even send some of our people to you to set up a game for people you know. Click here for more info.
2. If you can’t make it to one of our events, or if you want to discuss the issue with your friends, family or contacts you can download the Democs conversation game and hold your own event. The game has everything you need to hold a discussion on patient records – almost 100 cards detailing the key points of the debate, rules for using them and a form to record your results so they can contribute to the discussion. All you need to bring is people!
Getting the game
There are three editions of the game – one for England, one for Scotland and one for people with learning disabilities. For Scotland and England you can download the games here: England / Scotland. Or, you can order free printed copies of the game by sending us an email. If you’re short for time we’ve even written some instructions for a 30 minute game. The game for people with learning disabilities uses the same process, but we have re-written the cards using easy-read language, and produced a short video which helps the issues come to life. This version may also be useful for other groups who would like a simpler approach. If you’d like to order this version of the game, please email us.
You don’t need permission to play a game – just go ahead and do it. But if you’d like to ask us for any help or advice just get in touch. We might even be able to help out with money for refreshments to help keep you brains ticking over!
