Open minds, free minds - No easy prey for counterfeit medicines and similarly dangerous medicines - Psycho-pedagogical concept guide for teachers (2015)
Open minds, free minds: no easy prey for counterfeit medicines aims to inform, provide a concept for development and use of interactive storytelling for training and education at school: using a cartoon format, teachers can discuss risks and encourage behaviour that avoids known routes for exposure to counterfeit and similarly dangerous medical products. The main risk areas covered are mental and physical capacity-enhancers, and slimming products or medicines from illegal distribution channels. Target audiences include teachers, trainers, and social workers who will address this topic directly with children/adolescents. The cartoons are developed by professionals to enable children and adolescents to have fun and learn relevant preventative behaviours by gaming.
