Main focus: Research


The session will include a brief overview of the VR-CoDES as a coding system, designed to detect patients’ and providers’ emotional expressions. Evidence of students’ and health professionals’ difficulties in answering emotional expressions set the stage for using VR-CoDES as a means to improve the ability to respond attentively and timely to emotions when they emerge during clinical interactions.
We will present our experience in the application of VR-CODES to teaching and training, with a focus on online classes, and introduce some tips and ideas to apply in practice.
