Video is being used by Heather to build empathy among students in a nursing program. What stood out to me was two things – how important empathy is and that it decreases over time in a nursing program. I have some guesses as to why that may be, but that is a topic for another post.

The VR video was really amazing for showing the patient’s view of what was going on. I love this idea. The videos were filmed with a 360 go-pro camera and simulation manikin. The patient interviews were good because they involved storytelling. I am convinced that we need something like this in our programs. It would be nice if we could share the videos openly to promote collaboration and decrease the associated workload.
- Access to working technology with good resolution. She suggest partnering with someone with video production expertise.
- Timing – it took a long time to set up. she recommends a full day.
- Patient recruitment was also difficult. Some pre-screening is needed.
