Abstract

Room Escape is a collaborative team game in which clinical cases must be solved, with the aim of finding the appropriate treatment for each case. The aim was to facilitate the integration of content in a game environment and to evaluate the perception of the students. The activity was carried out during two academic years. It was evaluated quantitatively and qualitatively through a questionnaire. The students valued the activity positively, highlighting its usefulness for the integration of content, the possibility of self-evaluation, and the promotion of teamwork in a dynamic and fun way.
