Abstract

ABSTRACT: With limited time and resources in the acute care hospital, the most effective methods of stroke education are crucial. A combination of methods of one-on-one counseling or teaching, print, and video has been shown to have the greatest effect. Video education is a component of a combination educational approach. This evaluation from a large integrated system comprising 21 medical facilities compared patient satisfaction data with stroke education from 5 facilities that have video educational services and print materials and 17 facilities that provide print materials only. All 21 facilities provided additional teaching by the nurse. From this evaluation, it seems that there may be no relationship between video or kiosk equipment on patient satisfaction scores for this integrated system.
