Chemotherapy and bone marrow transplant patient education videos

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 nurses to show patients during education sessions. The videos complement exisitng education practices, providing consistent bite-size information.
