The use of media technology to promote self management in patient waiting area at the Physiotherapy Department, Slateford Medical Centre

Organisation : Physiotherapy Department, Slateford Medical Centre
Grant Amount : £ 1,000

Our project aims to determine the effectiveness of media technology in promoting self management in a musculoskeletal pain population.

We plan to install a television into the reception area of the Slateford physiotherapy department to improve patient experience and health education.

This would be achieved by providing an educational / interactive area in which we would present evidence based self management approaches our service promotes via reels of educational videos and signposting to third sector organisations.

The aim of the project will be to reinforce self management approaches, provide a supportive, educational environment and promote engagement to third sector community groups / organisations. We plan on determining the effectiveness of this project through audits.
