Key to Quality Therapy Apps

UniVirtual Experience - Educators in VR


How can we incorporate empathetic listening during therapeutic VR development? How can we improve our approach, and what are lessons to be learnt from other countries?

We are past the stage of trying to convince healthcare management and clinicians about the value of investing in VR. Hospitals are already sold on this technology. This is why we need to start focusing on improving the quality of the experiences we offer.
