Presentation Abstract:

In this CE webinar, we will explore the use of XR technologies in healthcare education. Specifically, we will focus on the use of AR/VR/MR. An overview of the different technologies will be defined and described. The benefits and challenges of XR will be discussed along with privacy and safety considerations. This will be followed by a deeper dive into some exemplar cases to provide a deeper understanding of the various ways XR can be used in education and training. The current state of research into the use of XR will be discussed, including how to measure both outcomes and usability of the technology. You will leave with ways to optimize student learning in innovative and exciting ways.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Understand the differences between XR, VR, AR.
  2. Explore current exemplar cases and practical application for use in clinical simulation.
  3. Review current research and outcomes of XR related to healthcare.
