Shepperd S, Coulter A, Farmer A. Using interactive videos in general practice to inform patients about treatment choices: A pilt study. Fam Pract. 1995 Dec;12(4):443-7.
Our objective was to assess the acceptability of using an interactive video system in a general practice setting to inform patients about treatment choices. A descriptive cohort study was carried out in eight general practices in Oxfordshire. Fifty-four patients with mild hypertension and 29 with benign prostatic hypertrophy were studied. Patients’ views of the video, treatment preference, level of involvement in treatment decision and satisfaction with decision-making process and GP’s views of the effect of the video on subsequent consultations were measured.
