Patient-Centered Robot Tours at The Ringling Museum of Art
The robot tour program designed by The Ringling allows patients receiving treatment to “walk” the galleries with a museum educator while in their hospital room with an employee from Sarasota Memorial Health Care System (SMHCS). Rooted in co-visiting and self-regulation, this holistic patient-centered program allows virtual museum visitors to be in control of their tour, providing a complementary approach in assisting with difficulties such as pain, anxiety, and general distraction. Join the presenters in a discussion on how integrative healthcare is using virtual museum visits with robots!
