LOOKING FROM THE PATIENT PERSPECTIVE
Instead of using technology to just provide pieces of information to inform diagnosis and treatment, PatientVR is using advanced media techniques in a very different way – to understand what it is like to be the recipient of care, helping highlight the importance of the human touch in healthcare. We recognise that when people understand what is happening to them, they feel more secure and less afraid. The innovative PatientVR is now helping health workers to experience this vulnerability and fear in a way that has never been accessible to us before unless we have been in that situation ourselves!
progress so far…
Researching and developing the use of immersive technology alongside cinematic understanding of narrative and visual perspectives to evolve humanities considerations in healthcare education
By developing a unique process experience from where the user can watch and interact with a patients visual perspective, healthcare staff can truly begin to feel what it is like for a patient in a healthcare journey
