The art of changing behaviour with virtual technology


In April’s issue of PME, Ella Nuttall (Health Psychology Specialist at Lucid Group) explains how changing behaviour requires a combination of science and art. She outlines how the impact of new technologies has increased the breadth of mechanisms (the ‘art’) through which science-based, behaviour-changing interventions are delivered. Of particular note is the emergence of virtual technology as a mechanism to support medical education – such as the first virtual reality operation due to take place this month – viewable live across the world.

Ella reveals how Lucid has successfully incorporated a variety of virtual technologies in their behaviour-changing medical education programmes: from live-link sessions of medical procedures to projection technology to portray a virtual patient. Ella discusses the impact and rationale behind using a virtual mannequin with Emma Herring (Lucid Account Director), who led the project.
