A CRUCIAL ISSUE
Even before the pandemic rates of anxiety and stress in the NHS were unimaginable; in Jan 2020 there were over 434,143 days lost to Anxiety, Stress, Depression, and other psychiatric illnesses absence1. This has clearly got a lot worse and it’s obvious NHS staff need serious support in the coming months and years.
Staff need is evident but how do you help your staff quickly and effectively today? DR.VRTM Frontline has been designed to work beside existing wellbeing programmes giving staff a simple and cost-effective way to self-manage their stress and anxiety at home.
built on evidence
VR has been researched for decades, with evidence that shows success in many areas of healthcare.
There is growing interest in VR research with the number of published scientific papers on the topic rising by more than 50% in a single year from 2019 to 2020.
We can see how VR has real potential to form a holistic part of the well-being of our staff. A wide range of colleagues and teams are experiencing the benefits of VR; from nurses, pharmacists, medics, therapists and clinical scientists through to our administrative and facilities staff. DR.VR can help kick start a conversation on the importance of well-being.
HELPING STAFF IN THEIR MOMENT OF NEED
DR.VR™ Frontline was created at the beginning of the pandemic. Based on work Dr Lynch carried out in ICU with patients, family members and staff we realised that we had an opportunity to create a solution to help reduce stress and anxiety.
An early prototype was trialled with Cwm Taf Morgannwg University Health Board in a service evaluation and showed that DR.VR™ was safe and clearly helped staff.
DR.VR™ Frontline has developed quickly from our initial prototype and now is a class 1 medical device.
