Virtual nurse Joanne - now delivering radiotherapy patient education
Patients often struggle to retain the amount of new information received in education sessions which can lead to poor retention, repetitive questions and limited engagement in their care. We have developed short, animated videos for patients during education sessions. The videos complement existing education practices, providing consistent bite-size information.
