This study will investigate factors surrounding use and application of scientific literature in patient-provider interactions and will examine facets of the patient-provider interaction itself as studied in a virtual encounter using virtual reality.
Healthy third- or fourth-year medical students or first-year medical interns in internal medicine and family practice specialties may be eligible for this study. Participants are recruited from the Washington, D.C., area.
Study subjects perform two tasks and complete two sets of questions. The first task involves reading scientific content on a health topic of public interest and explaining the article as if to a patient. The second task involves interacting with a virtual patient in a virtual environment clinical scenario. While in the virtual environment, the subject wears a head-mounted video unit that allows him or her to see elements of the environment. The activities in the virtual environment take about 15 minutes. The total time for the study is about 60 minutes.
