Virtual Reality for Pain Management in Orthopaedic Patients

Virtual Reality for Pain Management in Orthopaedic Patients

Publication date: Nov 05, 2019

1. Investigators will determine the feasibility of a virtual reality pain control program (VR-PCP) as a non-pharmacologic adjunct for pain management while in the hospital (i.e. patient ability and willingness to use the system measured by average time spent on the device). 2. Investigators will evaluate if there is a difference between the average daily use of opioid medications taken by patients who received usual care pain management versus patients using a VR-PCP. 3. Investigators will assess for differences in short-term postoperative patient-reported pain intensity (PROMIS Patient Intensity v1.0) for patients who received usual care pain management versus those who also have access to a VR-PCP.
