Forensic Psychology Training:
We have developed virtual reality experiences to allow medical staff to train in areas of violence, manage critical incidents, and become accustomed to procedural tasks that one would do in their field of work. We have developed a suite of different scenarios for St. Joseph’s Hospital & McMaster University that nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals can train with to prepare them for in-field complex and possibly dangerous situations. Through the use of virtual reality, we are able to immerse the trainee in an environment that simulates real life, allowing it to have the biggest impact on in-field experiences. More specifically, we have created scenarios that have occurred in the past, although rather than having a static ending, the medical professionals can make their own decisions along the way. Their decisions will impact the overall experience and outcome.
