Communication and Interaction in a Virtual Clinical Setting

Study Description

Patient Provider Communication and Interaction in a Virtual Clinical Setting

Summary: A few studies have explored factors which influence patient-provider communication in a controlled setting. However, more information is needed about how different factors affect communication so that it can be improved. Third- and fourth-year medical students may be eligible for this study. Participants are recruited from the Washington, D.C. area. At the research center, participants will use a virtual reality headset to view a virtual clinic environment and interact with a virtual patient. After interacting with the virtual patient, participants will complete a questionnaire about their experience within the virtual clinic and other research-related information. The total time for the study visit is 60 minutes. Eligibility: Third- and fourth-year medical students at least 18 years of age. You may not take part in the study if you have a history of seizures and/or are pregnant.
