Film Prescriptions: A New Method for Delivering Patient Empowerment and Education

Summary

Film prescriptions produced by behavioural change media experts and developed by health professionals and patients in Wales have been deployed nationally. Over 30 films are now available for type 2, type 1, gestational and prediabetes, covering all aspects of diabetes care. They were recently incorporated into the National Direct Enhanced Service (DES) for Diabetes in Wales and are viewed by approximately 1,000 patients each month. Initial evaluation of the system demonstrated improvement in disease control as measured by HbA1c.
