Adding Video Education to Your Patient Education Efforts
The Health Literacy Program at Children’s Hospital Colorado has launched an in-house video education program to enhance the patient and family education experience. Video education is a best-practice that addresses many challenges frequently encountered in healthcare, including linguistic diversity, low literacy, acuity of patient conditions, and shorter lengths of stay. It has been shown to improve retention over paper-based education. This session will walk through the patient education video development process from start to finish, how to determine if a topic will translate well to a video format, and will train participants on basic script development skills.
