Pediatrics Deep Dive
Children are among the most vulnerable patients in healthcare. It is vital to find safe and effective ways to engage pediatric populations. Immersive technologies represent a new form of therapeutic intervention for children that has potential to offer both clinical benefits and enjoyment during often difficult illness experiences. In this deep dive, we will hear from three of the top researchers seeking ways to improve quality of life, reduce pain, and minimize stress for children undergoing medical procedures. Led by pediatric VR pioneer Kate Donovan, the panel will explore the unique challenges and potential risks of using VR and related technologies in this population.
