The health and medical industry has many technical terms and definitions that everyday people may not understand. Because of this, health and medical issues combined with a complex health system can be somewhat daunting and overwhelming for patients. The emotional nature of these issues adds even further burden to the patient, their family members and friends. There is an ever growing need for medical professionals and organisations to drop the jargon and explain these issues in a way that ordinary people can understand. One of the best tools to use is a health explainer video.
Health explainer videos, as the name suggests, are audio-visual aids that can reduce complex medical issues into digestible, easy-to-understand packages. A well-crafted health explainer video will increase the awareness and educate an audience in a unique and engaging way. In addition, it can also act as a great website or social media content that people can share online.
