Flu Bee Game creates a buzz about staff flu vaccination
In the NHS and social care, it’s vital that staff get their flu vaccination to protect themselves, family, colleagues, and patients from the virus. Engaging trust staff and getting their attention is the starting point for any influenza vaccination campaign.
The Flu Bee Game is designed to improve staff flu vaccination rates by engaging, educating, and encouraging staff.
Flu Bee is a unique online game, it helps staff understand why the flu vaccine is so important, and encourages them to get vaccinated.
The game presents flu facts, busts vaccine myths, and tells staff where and how they can get vaccinated in their trust. The game sits within a supporting website that offers detailed information about each campaign.
The game and website can be customised to support any staff flu campaign and help trusts achieve the 70 per cent CQUIN target.
Flu Bee was inspired by Joan Pons Laplana and the transformation team at James Paget University Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust.
They spent a lot of time talking to frontline staff and realised how many myths and excuses surround the Flu Jab.
Joan thought a game would be an unusual and effective way to engage, inform, and encourage staff to get the flu vaccination. So, she approached Focus Games and asked if they’d help to create a new game and Flu Bee was born.
The app works on any device and only takes a few minutes to play. Players answer questions about flu and vaccination.
They can share their scores on the game’s leader-board and invite colleagues to play and compete via social media.
The objective is to create a local, regional, and national ‘buzz’ through social media and word-of-mouth that raises awareness and increases uptake of the vaccine. The Flu Bee Game makes staff engagement easy and effective.
A customised Flu Bee will include your trust’s logos, clinic information, contact numbers and regular updates about your vaccination rates.
