    Usability and Acceptability of Complementary Immersive Virtual Reality for Intense Symptom Management in Hospitalized Adult Patients with Advanced Illness
    Center for Healthcare Delivery Science Nov 17, 2020
    Role: Co-Investigator
    Description: The plan to evaluate the impact of this innovation is to measure the change in the intense symptoms from “pre intervention” to “post intervention” both after one intervention and after multiple interventions to determine the long term impact. We would also compare the change in intense symptoms of the cohort with the IVR therapy to a control group that had the standard of care over that same time frame. The impact of this innovation will be to help relieve the suffering of hospitalized adult patients with advanced illness and intense symptoms perhaps decreasing the amount of pain medication and improving quality of life while decreasing length of stay. Importantly the Immersive Virtual Reality therapy could bring critical comfort to the patients, their families and their caregivers at this critical period of time during the COVID 19 - pandemic. Accumulating evidence supports ending isolation and precautions for persons with COVID-19 using a symptom-based strategy. (13)
