1. Interview with Dr. Shorin Nemeth, Medical Director Pain Services and Oncology Palliative Care at Providence Medical Group. Dr. Nemeth shares his experience and professional assessment of VR pain relief. Firsthand worked with Dr. Nemeth in Providence's first clinical implementation of VR for pain relief. The pilot installed VR into the recovery rooms of pancreatic cancer patients. Analysis comparing VR to the standard-of-care showed large, clinically significant advantages for VR: 30% better pain control, 20% reduction in opioid use, and a significant reduction in patient care costs.
