Study finds that patient education videos viewed before an operation may benefit patients
Date:5/1/2012

t education tools like the video are not intended to replace surgeons, but rather to complement their conversations with patients. "This video may save the surgeon time and make the experience better for the patient. We don't want physicians to think they don't have to spend time with patients, but the video makes it more interactive. What's important to us as surgeons might not be a primary issue to the patient. We might say here's how the operation goes and here's your risk of dying [without it]. But the patient might actually want to know how they will get around two weeks or two months from now," he explained.

The video also helps guard against patients coming across incorrect information from doing their own research on the Internet. Moreover, Dr. Crabtree and colleagues included perspectives from nurses and other ancillary surgical staff to compile the video, because "the only thing worse than no information is bad information," he said.

In the coming months, Dr. Crabtree and the Thoracic Surgery Patient Education Task Force of the American College of Surgeons plan to lead a follow-up study, a randomized multi-institutional trial, with a revised, more in-depth version of the video. Dr. Crabtree said the ultimate goal is to standardize the video for use with lung surgery patients throughout the country.
