Patient Education Videos
The Koop Institute, with a grant from the Koop Foundation of Rockville, Maryland, is editing and producing new masters of a series of patient education videos designed to help individuals and their families better understand medical conditions with which they have been diagnosed.
The videos, originally produced by Time Life Medical, address major medical conditions such as coronary artery disease, depression, diabetes, menopause, prostate cancer, and stroke. The thirty-minute videos are accompanied by twenty-two page personal workbooks, the combination of which can assist patients in communicating more effectively with their health care providers.
The Koop Institute's post-production assistance with this video series upholds our mission of using technology as a tool to improve health care.
