WALTHAM, Mass.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Wolters Kluwer, Health is helping health consumers stay healthy and informed about COVID-19 with trustworthy information through an easy-to-understand video, “Understanding COVID-19 and How to Stay Safe.” The video makes Emmi’s® proven behavioral design and multimedia patient engagement expertise available to any organization globally using current, evidence-based information about coronavirus from UpToDate®.
“It can be overwhelming for individuals to figure out how to protect themselves and their loved ones with all of the conflicting information and, at times, misinformation about COVID-19, with the additional challenge that guidelines and recommendations are continually changing as we learn more about the virus,” said Denise Basow, MD, CEO, Clinical Effectiveness at Wolters Kluwer, Health. “By creating this Emmi video, our objective was to offer a trustworthy and easy-to-access resource clinicians and hospitals can confidently share with their patients, knowing that the content is reviewed by the UpToDate editorial team.”
The reassuring video informs and empowers patients to protect themselves and to manage COVID-19 symptoms if they become sick. Topics include:
- What COVID-19 is and how it's spread
- What the symptoms are for COVID-19
- What to do if you are feeling sick
- What to do if you are worried you’ve been exposed
- How to stay healthy
- How to slow the spread of the virus
“Understanding COVID-19 and How to Stay Safe” is available free for use by the general public, clinicians, hospitals and health systems, as well as pharmacies, health plans and other health-related organizations. It is also available in the UpToDate COVID-19 patient education topic, and is part of a suite of patient resources, which can be accessed here.
