Medical Mindfulness: Virtual Reality Mindfulness Therapy for Anxiety and Pain Management in Patients With Acute and Chronic Pain

Adults and children undergoing medical care (inpatient or outpatient) often experience pain and anxiety either as a result of their medical condition or a side effect of medical procedures. The purpose of this study is to create a registry of patients using virtual reality (VR) mindfulness therapy through different aspects of their medical care to determine if VR mindfulness therapy is more effective than the standard of care (i.e., no technology based distraction) for treating or preventing anxiety and pain in adults and children suffering from chronic pain, GI conditions where pain is a common symptom, or undergoing any painful medical procedure (i.e. IV access, blood draws, endoscopy, surgery). The anticipated primary outcome will be reduction of pain and anxiety for both acute and chronic pain. Read the details.
