Virtual and Augmented Healthcare
Time & Location
About the Event
The virtual reality hype cycle is truly a roller coaster with many ups and downs. This event aims to provide an update on how VR & AR have been implemented in healthcare so that you can judge for yourself if VR/AR has been effective.
We will start with an overview of the issues being addressed using VR & AR. Then we’ll move to examples of how immersive technologies have already impacted medical training and clinical practice as well as direct patient experience.
This evening will be an opportunity to learn about successes and challenges and to identify unanswered questions about VR/AR effectiveness in healthcare.

We’ve been awarded a Fairer Tech grant from doteveryone to make our events more accessible (woop woop!). If for any reason there are barriers to engaging in the community we invite anyone to apply for up to £30* per person per event to cover personal costs to improve this. The money can cover just about anything, including but not limited to child/other care, taxis if you’re not able-bodied, trains if you live out in the countryside, a live captioner, recording of the event or loss of earnings if you have a side job along your studies. Who are we to judge?! If you feel it’s a barrier, we agree too.
Simply fill out this VERY SHORT form and we’ll confirm the expense :-)
