Pathways for Consent

Obtaining Consent

Imperial College has partnered with the Sussex Partnership NHS Foundation Trust, the University of Brighton and the Grace Eyre Foundation to develop and test a customised virtual world experience intended to help NHS staff to gain properly informed consent from patients with learning disability.

  • People with learning disabilities learn best from multimodal experiences.
  • Immersive Virtual Reality has been shown to support learning.
  • We will use a virtual hospital experience to discover if we can enhance recall and understanding.
  • After exposure the user’s understanding will be tested by using a form of non-directive interview technique.
This project is funded by NIHR Invention for Innovation (i4i) programme.
