The Brain Science of Satisfaction and Why VR Provides an Ideal Solution

This webcast focuses on the relationship between healthcare education and training and patient and provider satisfaction. We argue that high-quality training for patients and providers is synergistic, leading to mutual understanding and empathy, a strong working relationship that benefits both parties, and enhanced patient and provider satisfaction.

We evaluate traditional approaches to patient and provider training, usually text-based, from a learning science perspective—the marriage of psychology and brain science. We show that text-based healthcare training content targets one learning system in the brain, is generally ineffective, and is especially ineffective in children, older adults, and in stressful or anxiety-producing situations (common in healthcare).

Next, we explore virtual reality (VR) approaches to healthcare education and training. We show that VR training approaches incorporate a broad set of learning systems in the brain in synchrony, including learning systems that are less affected by age, stress, or anxiety.

We conclude that immersive technologies, like VR, provide cost-effective, scalable high-quality educational training tools for healthcare patients and providers that enhance satisfaction and performance.

In this webcast, you will learn about: - the emerging technology of virtual reality as applied in healthcare - the psychology and brain science behind VR technology - the potential for this technology to revolutionize education and training for patients and providers - some current use cases of this technology.

Ready for what's next?

Now you will be.

At the end of the day, your healthcare journey begins and ends with you. Using virtual reality to improve education and training in healthcare has limitless potential to impact the lives of everyone you meet along the way.

Remember, evidence shows VR:

  • Improves satisfaction
  • Decreases anxiety
  • Improves learning
  • Improves retention
  • Increases actionable empathy
  • Outperforms classroom-based learning
  • Is the medium preferred by learners

The benefits of VR have never been more accessible.
