experiential educationdesigned to lower anxiety and the need for sedation
These gamified “experiential education” programs have successfully lowered the need for sedation (or restraint), reduced cancellations and increased facility throughput by providing Xbox style educational adventures for patient acclimation.
NOTE: VR headsets are not always required. With all programs clinical staff and/or family can participate in the experience via the monitor. This monitor is also provided for patients who are uncomfortable with VR headsets.
