Effective clinical training for health professionals in a large health service plays a vital role in delivery of patient care. Traditional training methods tend to be didactic whereas progressive methods are interactive. This project explored two contemporary learning activities i.e. digital escape rooms and Kahoot; trialed within existing allied health and nursing courses. Results indicated that contemporary learning methods did improve participant engagement, learner motivations and overall performance in training content knowledge. Active engagement with the training content and with other learners also revealed improvement in retention and recall of training content.
