Forensic Psychology Training in VR
We developed virtual reality experiences that 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 achieved this by developing a suite of scenarios for St. Joseph’s Hospital & McMaster University that nurses, doctors, and other medical professionals train with to prepare them for in-field complex and possibly dangerous situations. Using virtual reality, we can 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, but rather than a static ending, the medical professionals can make their own decisions along the way. Their decisions will impact the overall experience and outcome.
