By Trevor J. Adams 9 September 2022 Share this story
Many interesting things are happening in local labs. With its Beyond Research podcast, Research Nova Scotia aims to introduce audiences to researchers and community leaders who are working to find practical applications for their innovations.
As the system groans beneath the weight of COVID-19, the recent “Virtual Reality and Health Care” episode with the IWK’s Dr. Jordan Sheriko and Megan Brydon explores how technology can ease the burden.
“Although the field is still relatively new, there seem to be more and more examples of virtual reality having a positive impact on health-care delivery, treatment, and training both here at home and around the globe,” say the hosts. “In this episode, we will explore examples of how research in the area of virtual reality could help address current gaps in our health-care system and improve patient care today and in the future.”
