“Videos One of the areas of research and education we are focusing on is the use of videos to encourage participation by people with Down syndrome in their own health promotion. This is based on our tenets of health promotion: –Living longer and healthier lives is an active process. –Adolescents and adults with Down syndrome can and should be encouraged to participate in their own health promotion –It occurs in the office –It occurs in the home, at work, in recreational activities
We are developing and studying the use of videos as a health promotion/patient education method. (Please see our recent post inviting people with Down syndrome to participate in a study to assess use of videos in patient education for people with DS).
Our videos are designed to be used by an individual or to encourage discussion in a group of people with Down syndrome.”
