Pain Knowledge Needs of Family Caregivers and Persons with Dementia: Role of Virtual Reality as a Training Modality

We are looking for people living with dementia and their family caregivers (family members or friends who assist with care or provide company for 4 or more hours/week) to volunteer to share their experiences about pain management and their opinions on virtual reality for pain education.

As a participant in this study, you would be asked to: complete a brief paper survey with questions about you (10 minutes), and an interview that will last approximately 60 minutes. The interview will be held in a location that is convenient for you (e.g., your residence, or a private meeting location at the hospital or university).

This study has been reviewed and approved by the Saskatchewan Health Authority Research Ethics Office (REB 19-19).
