Patient Education Videos

Patient education is an integral part of our mission, helping to engage and empower patients to improve their health. We believe it is our responsibility not only to treat illness but also to keep people as healthy as possible.

Mass General Brigham works with providers (like doctors and nurses, among others) to create videos designed to educate patients and their families.

These videos are for patients and their friends and families. These videos are not a substitute for your care team. If you have a specific question related to your own health needs, please contact your care team.
