The Appointment: Men’s Health Week

June 16, 2009

In our continuing series of blog postings about National Men’s Health Week, today we feature a video called The Appointment that highlights the importance of improved doctor-patient communications. A Spanish version titled “La Cita” is also available.

The goal of this tongue-in-cheek video is to improve doctor-patient relationships and healthcare outcomes. Many people have fears of going to the doctor. This video can help patients better understand how to work with their doctors, get the most out of each visit, and stay on track with future appointments.

The purpose of National Men’s Health Week is to heighten the awareness of preventable health problems and encourage early detection and treatment of disease among men and boys. So pass this video along to help improve the doctor appointment experience.

The video is made available by HealthMedia in conjunction with Men’s Health Network.
