The Wellflix Solution
The Wellflix video education library consists of short (3 – 5 minute) videos that show the patient and/or caregiver how to care for the patient’s wound, avoid infection, and properly follow their clinical providers’ instructions. Wellflix videos have been designed for a number of clinical specialties and can be co-branded to reflect the healthcare organization’s own logo.
Informed by decades of research in the effectiveness of video instruction, we believe the efficacy of any instructional media depends upon the quality and appropriateness of the content itself – just as some books and movies work and others fail. Social Cognitive Theory, the observational learning science authored by Stanford professor Albert Bandura, has proven to be effective in teaching and changing a subject’s behavior. Wellflix co-founder, Peter Orton, studied with Albert Bandura; hence, Social Cognitive Theory forms the foundation and design of every Wellflix video. To learn more, please contact us.
