The following CEU Opportunity is being provided by the University of Utah and is not officially sponsored by the Utah Recreation Therapy Association.
Virtual Reality (VR) is an emerging technology that is quickly making its way into health care programs. Commercial VR systems like the HTC Vive and Oculus Rift have made owning a personal console possible both for clients and therapists. Research has shown that using virtual reality in health care can improve functional outcomes for diverse clients, yet CTRSs have found time and training to be a barrier to use in their facilities. This CEU workshop will provide valuable information about VR use and treatment implementation for RT professionals.
This CEU workshop will cover background information about VR, set-up and installation procedures for the HTC Vive VR commercial gaming system, introduction to multiple VR games and applications with relevance to recreational therapy practice, overview of therapy resources, and extensive hands on practice and role play of RT sessions using VR equipment.
