Professor Albert "Skip" Rizzo, Ph.D. The director of the Institute for Creative Technologies in Medical Virtual Reality at the University of Southern California will give a lectureClinical Virtual Reality: A Brief Review of the Future, on Monday, June 5, 2023, at 4:30 pm in theBurian Auditoriumat the 3rd Faulty of Medicine Charles University(Ruská 2411, Praha 10-Vinohrady). See more detailed information below.

Since the mid-1990s, a significant scientific literature has evolved regarding the outcomes from the use of what we now refer to as Clinical Virtual Reality (VR). This use of VR simulation technology has produced encouraging results when applied to address cognitive, psychological, motor, and functional impairments across a wide range of clinical health conditions. This presentation will provide a brief description of the various forms of VR technology and describe the trajectory of Clinical VR over the last 25 years addressing health and clinical treatment of anxiety disorders, PTSD, pain management, autism, and in the assessment/rehabilitation of stroke, brain injury, and other neurologically-based conditions. I will also discuss advances in Virtual Human technology for clinical training, healthcare coaching, and clinical interviewing. While there is still much research needed to advance the science in this area, I will make the case that Clinical VR applications will soon become indispensable tools in the toolbox of healthcare researchers and practitioners and will only grow in relevance and popularity in the near future.
