Patient Education Concepts Announces the Immediate Availability of a KAMRA® Inlay Consent Video
For Immediate Release:
June 30, 2016 – Houston, TX…. A 12 – minute video, “Understanding Your Procedure: KAMRA® Inlay,” is now available from Houston-based Patient Education Concepts (PEC). The video presents how the KAMRA inlay works; explains how the procedure is performed and covers post-operative instructions, side-effects and potential risks and complications.
“We were honored to have AcuFocus elect PEC to produce this video,” said Robert Watson, President of PEC. “This program will save their customers a lot of chair time explaining this exciting and unique method for the treatment of presbyopia.”
It is well documented that an effective informed consent process helps maintain good communication between physicians and patients. Since 1982, Patient Education Concepts has provided video assisted informed consent programs to assist with the requirement that ophthalmologists must disclose risks and complications and verify their patients understand those risks.
“Our goal in working with PEC to produce a consent video on the KAMRA inlay is to assure each and every patient considering this device be well informed prior to giving their consent for surgery,” said Wellentina Greer, AcuFocus’ Director of Global Strategic Marketing. “We firmly believe that better patient education leads to improved compliance and better outcomes. Having our surgeons utilizing this program will certainly enhance the communication process, increase patient satisfaction and generate even more interest in the KAMRA inlay.”
“Because informed consent delivery methods vary from practice to practice, PEC is offering the KAMRA consent video in a variety of formats so practices can choose where and how they want to educate their patients,” added Mr. Watson. “It is available via DVDs or MP4 format.”
