資訊科技日新月異，從行動載具邁入穿戴裝置， 虛擬實境（virtual reality, VR）、擴增實境（augmented reality, AR）與混合實境（mixed reality, MR）應用愈來愈廣泛，VR、AR與MR新的應用情境逐步產生，醫療護理領域也逐漸導入VR、AR與MR技術，舉凡：醫療護理教學訓練、手術模擬、神經復健、心理治療、遠距醫療等。相關研究成果證實，VR、AR與MR的運用能改善傳統醫療護理的不便利性，減少臨床上的生疏操作而所造成醫療疏失，降低醫護教學成本，有效提升醫護人員的訓練成效，與照護品質，改善護病關係，並增加臨床工作之執行效率。本篇文章主要針對VR、AR與MR在醫護實務與教育應用之歸納介紹，希冀能讓護理人員對VR、AR與MR在醫護實務與教育的應用有更多認知與瞭解，也期盼藉由這些科技來提高醫療技術及醫護實務之品質。
As technology advances, mobile devices have gradually turned into wearable devices. Furthermore, virtual reality (VR), augmented reality (AR), and mixed reality (MR) are being increasingly applied in medical fields such as medical education and training, surgical simulation, neurological rehabilitation, psychotherapy, and telemedicine. Research results demonstrate the ability of VR, AR, and MR to ameliorate the inconveniences that are often associated with traditional medical care, reduce incidents of medical malpractice caused by unskilled operations, and reduce the cost of medical education and training. What is more, the application of these technologies has enhanced the effectiveness of medical education and training, raised the level of diagnosis and treatment, improved the doctor-patient relationship, and boosted the efficiency of medical execution. The present study introduces VR, AR, and MR applications in medical practice and education with the aim of helping health professionals better understand the applications and use these technologies to improve the quality of medical care.
