IWK staff participates in virtual reality study
Congratulations to Jessica Kimber and Megan Brydon from the IWK who were part of a study recently published.
The study was published in the Journal of Medical Imaging and Radiation Sciences. It suggests that the use of virtual reality (VR) may be effective in eliciting empathy in medical radiation technologists (MRTs). Researchers concluded that VR may provide an effective tool for health care workers to experience the perspective of care recipients.
"As Medical Radiation Technologists, we are interested in the intersection of care and technology," says lead author Megan Brydon, the picture archiving and communication system (PACS) application specialist, in diagnostic imaging at IWK Health. "We started this project in 2019, pre-pandemic, and now the idea of learning empathy in a virtual environment has taken on a new relevance."
