How can an immersive multimedia experience help in the management of chronic pain?
Immersive multimedia experiences have been shown to benefit individuals from a range of clinical settings such as with patients experiencing acute pain. These multimedia experiences may also help reduce chronic pain by changing the pain modulation system within the central nervous system and altering pain signal pathways. We aim to determine if these multimedia technologies can help cancer patients with chronic pain.
UBC is looking to recruit cancer patients with chronic pain to test the use of an immersive multimedia experience in their own homes. The equipment and training will be provided, and in appreciation for your time, you will also receive a fee for your participation.
