Virtual Reality is revolutionising healthcare. The simulation provides hands-on experience for medical students in training, helps PTSD patients overcome trauma and assists with pain management.
During our master class, learn first hand about the role of VR in wound care, in the theatre, in the clinical consulting space and more, from Dr Keith Grimes, a GP who has used VR with his patients and who has a passion for digital health, innovation and technology. Keith will also share the opportunities and blocks to scale the technology within the NHS.
You can read more about Keith and his work in his page http://www.drgrimes.co.uk/
The master class will consist of presentations, challenging discussions, Q&A with Keith, networking and post-event activities. Breakfast will be provided.
You'll meet others in the field, have your questions answered, challenges discussed, and will go away with new ideas, and powerful connections.

What others say about our events:
I am a UK based General Practitioner, with a special interest in Urgent & Unscheduled Care, Musculoskeletal medicine, and Sports medicine. I’m also the founder of VR Doctors! My abiding passions are Digital Health, Innovation and Technology. I have been involved in the creation and delivery of innovative clinical services such as the award nominated Roving GP service in Brighton & Hove, East Sussex. More recently I’ve been privileged to work with the Digital Health and Care Institute, NHS Fife, and Glasgow Caledonian University on the award winning MyLittleOne (MLO), a neonatal intensive care camera/tablet system. I am a strong believer in the ability of IM&T to not only support and augment the delivery of Healthcare in its current form, but also in the need to radically review existing structures and perceptions of how care can be delivered Globally.View profile

Dr. Grimes sharing his experience with our participants
Immersed in VR
Discussion about key challenges in VR
There are lots of VR events happening all around London every week, some of these talks often flashy and lacking substance. Not the case with the IMT events! The talks I've been to so far were top quality - good speakers presenting actual content, friendly atmosphere and interesting questions from the audience. I really look forward to the next event.
