Virtual-Reality and augmented-reality are becoming innovative teaching and learning approaches across many industries, including healthcare, especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. However, the adoption rate of this technology is very low, especially in Australian healthcare Interprofessional Education. This study investigates factors influencing adoption and use of mixed-reality technology for Australian healthcare IPE. In this study, a theoretical model based on the Expectation and Confirmation Model and Task Technology Fit is developed and will be tested to determine Australian healthcare professionals’ intentions to continue using mixed-reality for Interprofessional Education through three validated surveys using a voluntary non-probability sampling strategy, over a 10-week period, targeting 124 healthcare professionals at the Tweed hospital, NSW Australia. The research outcome will assist in determining the validity of the proposed hybrid model in the context of MR healthcare training. It may assist in developing a more suitable theoretical framework and future characteristics of MR for healthcare training.
