If you are interested in healthcare in Second Life, here are a few tips to get you going:
I’m taking snapshots in Second Life of various medical venues. I think it is a quick way to get an overview of the variety that is out there, without actually logging into Second Life: www.sluniverse.com/pics/Default.aspx?Name=Knoh+Oh
The main mailing list for folks that are really involved in SL Medical stuff: lists.secondlife.com/cgi-bin/mailman/listinfo/healthcare
There’s a nice wiki being put together at SLHealthy: slhealthy.wetpaint.com
If you are in-world (within Second Life) you would do well to check out these areas:
- Sexual Health Sim
- Virtual Hallucinations
- The Virtual Neurological Education Centre
- SL Medical Library and Health Info Island
There are many more places to go, and things change so much in Second Life I hesitate even linking to these…but I know how it helps to have a bit of direction.
Finally, the reason I went into Second Life in the first place was to check out support groups for a medical informatics class I was taking. I found this BBC produced video about Support for Healing Island and that is what convinced me to give the whole thing a try.
