    There is a bit for every illness - How video games can support therapy in chronic disease

    Abstract

    Can therapy be fun? How can a digital game idea be implemented despite strong limitations imposed by legal, administrative and medical control mechanisms? How do you deal with different stakeholders such as patients, doctors, practitioners and pharmacists during development? Using the example of Patchie, an interdisciplinary project for the therapeutic support of children suffering from cystic fibrosis, the presentation will show you where to start, how therapy can be fun and which hurdles you have to overcome.
