Taking care of those  who care

 

Healthcare professionals have been on the front line fighting for us to keep us safe, now is the time to put them in front of the line to take care of their health. At hospital Vall d’Hebron, a world-leading healthcare complex located in Barcelona, the MK360 has been used as a therapeutic resource that treats the emotional well-being of healthcare professionals.

Immersive  mindfulness  content

 

The Vall d’Hebron Psychiatry department is benefiting from immersive mindfulness content illustrated by the works of Van Gogh and Monet to provide a guided therapy that combats pandemic fatigue and other disorders. It is currently being offered to hospital professionals, and it is being expanded to include patients.

Content suited to the participants’ needs

 

Under the leadership and guidance of Doctor Josep Antoni Ramos-Quiroga the Head of the Psychiatric Department and Eva Aurín, the hospital’s Head of Innovation and eHealth, we are able to create immersive experiences that provide a relaxing environment to improve the mental health of their healthcare staff. During the sessions, participants can dive into the ocean, swim with dolphins, or dive into a colorful universe of mandalas. These experiences are followed by curated music selected to adapt to the participants’ specific needs.

100% improvement in the participant’s mood

 

“To detect possible disorders and analyze the therapy results, we start the session by conducting two surveys with three questions, one at the entrance and the other at the exit of the sessions. For now, one hundred percent of the people who have tried the experience want to repeat it,” says Merche Rodríguez, supervisor of the Vall d’Hebron Psychiatry Department.

 

Before entering the session, Merche points out that when asked to define in a word the feeling or emotion that best describes the moment in which the participants live, 80% answered “concern.” At the end of the session, however, the mood improves. When asked to define how they feel in a word, 100% respond “calm and/or relaxed.” And when it comes to choosing an emoticon with which they feel most identified at the time, 100% choose a happy face. Over 50 participants are benefiting from the weekly sessions, and many more have enjoyed the immersive sessions at least once. 

Future uses for the immersive technology

 

As the first evaluations have shown great benefits, Eva Aurín says that they are planning on making use of this technology to carry out immersive activities adapted to pediatric patients admitted to the hospital as well as long-stay patients.
