Title: The Role of Virtual Reality and Digital Therapeutics in the Future of Nursing


COVID-19 has accelerated the demand for and implementation of digital solutions that tackle some of the endemic global challenges to public health. Whether it be measures designed to avoid disease transmission or strategies to encourage better personal health management within the population, digital solutions are already playing a key role in the future of healthcare.

These digital solutions, whether for personal health management, therapeutics or education are likely to have a significant impact on the role of nurses and nursing practices. This presentation looks at virtual reality and digital therapeutics technologies and considers how they will impact the future of nursing.
