Prof. Mike English leads the LIFE project team. The team has considerable experience implementing healthcare worker training across Africa. Mike developed the ETAT+ training in 2006 and delivered the first courses with Prof. Grace Irimu and Dr. Wachira (Chairperson of the National Resuscitation Council of Kenya), and subsequently demonstrated its effects at changing practices in a 2 year study across 8 hospitals. For the LIFE project, they have been joined by Oxford colleagues Dr Chris Paton, Dr. Hilary Edgcombe and Jakob Rossner. Chris, Hilary and Jakob have combined expertise in health informatics, simulation training and game development. Prof Niall Winters and Dr Anne Geniets have recently joined the LIFE team from the Department of Education. The LIFE artwork is being designed by award winning African game designers, Leti Games. Oxford University Innovation, the University of Oxford’s technology transfer organisation is helped the team to launch a campaign through its new crowdfunding platform, OxReach, to support LIFE.
