Efficacy of Multimedia in Patient-Physician Interactions

12:00pm - 1:00pm Wednesday, March 7
Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Murano 3304

Description

Traditionally, patient education has taken one of two forms: written brochures or orally communicated instructions. There is substantial literature that indicates neither approach is effective, due to the lack of information retention. This lack of retention is usually due to disengagement and disinterest in information presented in the form of brochures or due to the inability to recall and reference verbally communicated information. The first, brochures, is often provided with no explanation from a clinician and the latter, verbal dialogue, is commonly not documented and archived. In 2017, we initiated a study involving the participation of over 400 patients for the purpose of determining the efficacy of 3-D multi-media patient education enabled through mobile devices. This session will reveal major findings from our research, and provide recommendations for implementing an effective patient engagement program focused on improved physician-patient interaction.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Assess areas for improvement in the delivery of patient education as a technique in addressing patient engagement needs
  • Identify impacts of using integrated mobile computing devices for the delivery of multiple-media patient education in patient care
  • Compare provider and patient perspectives about multi-media patient education content used during clinical consults (usability and value)
  • Apply concepts and lessons learned in the integration of multi-media patient education via mobile computing devices during provider-patient interactions
