Experiences of the health and disability sector new video library highlights patients experiences

Issue 50 – June 2013

A library of short videos highlighting people's experiences of the health and disability sector is a valuable new resource for New Zealanders. The Health Quality & Safety Commission's consumer programme has produced more than 20 short videos over the past year featuring consumers, family/whānau, and providers talking about their experiences of the health system. The videos give a personal view of what it's like to be involved in the health system from a variety of viewpoints.

Most of the videos run for 3 to 4 minutes. They are grouped into four categories – patient, consumer and family/whānau videos; videos of members of the Commission's consumer network; videos of the Commission's consumer representatives; and provider videos.

The library includes videos of people talking about their diagnosis and living with cancer, mental illness, diabetes, and other chronic illnesses.
