Providing patients with educational videos and resources they can understand

Nearly 22% of the US population speaks a language at home that is not English (CIS, 2018), and more than half of US adults read below sixth-grade level.* UpToDate editors and designers craft inclusive evidence-based content:

“This video helped me understand a lot more about my surgery and what to expect in the weeks and months to come. It also gave helpful ideas and insights into food and the changes that will take place after I return to eating food. Thanks for the security that my decision was the right one for me.”
