Amy Winiger ACNP-BC, AACC. Utilization of a Teaching Video to Improve Outcomes for Post MI and Stent Patients. (Under the direction of Dr. Katie Shue-McGuffin) The Advanced Practice Providers (APPs) for Sanger Heart and Vascular Institute (SHVI), an adult cardiology practice in a large metropolitan city, provide hospital follow-up care to post-myocardial infarction (MI) patients. The APPs identified a problem: patients retained very little of the information they receive during their hospitalization. The purpose of this pilot project was to evaluate the impact of a unique and succinct post-MI educational video addressing Ask Me 3® questions on patient’s knowledge of self-care activities to promote cardiovascular health. The project used a quasi-experimental design with a pre-test and post-test to evaluate the effectiveness of a post-MI educational video compared to the standard teaching methods. There were 25 total participants, 12 in the control group and 13 in the intervention group, enrolled in the project. The increase in the intervention group’s post- test scores was statistically significant (p value = 0.0056), showing a vast improvement in knowledge with an educational video. A post-MI educational video may effectively improve patient outcomes when incorporated with the standard teaching methods. Patients may view the video multiple times, improving their knowledge of lifestyle modifications following hospitalization.
