Title of the Study
Effectiveness of locally developed virtual reality training applications for Dementia awareness training: A comparative study
What is this Study about?
Singapore Institute of Technology (SIT) is collaborating with Dementia Singapore to assess the effectiveness of a locally-developed training application to improve knowledge, attitudes, awareness and empathy, and study the influence of demographic factors in the effectiveness of VR dementia education.
What will I do if I participate in the Study?
You will be asked to complete some pre-training questionnaires to understand your experience with dementia and to determine your suitability to engage in web-based VR.
As part of this study, participants are required to attend a 2-hour dementia awareness workshop which involves the use of VR headsets, using the Experience Dementia in Singapore (EDIS) application developed by Dementia Singapore OR attend a 2-hour dementia awareness workshop via Zoom and watch a video about the experience of a Person Living with Dementia.
You will then be required to complete a post-training questionnaire, and optionally sit for a 20-minute semi-structured interview about your perspective on the training.
Participants will be awarded a $20 voucher if they complete the training as well as pre- and post- training surveys and alternatively, a $30 voucher if they agree to be interviewed as well.
