The NUS Yong Loo Lin School of Medicine is rolling out a new programme that uses virtual reality to help medical and nursing students gain skills to manage agitated patients safely and with empathy. There were over 1,400 reported cases of abuse of healthcare workers in 2021, up from 1,300 in 2020. From a trial conducted among 65 students, 92% of them gained more confidence in dealing with agitated patients. Around 600 medical and nursing students will go through this programme each year, once it rolls out in June
