A recent Cedars-Sinai study found that virtual reality therapy helps decrease pain in Hospitalized patients. Based on this study, Cedars-Sinai is now conducting a larger trial to measure the impact of virtual reality on the use of pain medications, length of hospital stay, and post-discharge satisfaction scores.

Topics to be covered include:
