Nurses have been able to invent new and creative ways to educate patients due to advances in technology. One advance, the use of videotapes for patient education, has increased in popularity over the last decade. This study evaluated the use of a videotape entitled "Moving Along," which was designed for post-hip repair patient education. A questionnaire was used to determine healthcare personnel's perspectives regarding content of the videotape and recommendations regarding videotape use and length. Data analyzed consisted of responses to the questionnaire. Analysis of the results suggested that the videotape should aid patients recovering from hip surgery as the content was found to be informative. Suggestions for information that could be added as well as deleted in order to improve the videotape are also reported. Videotapes permit the patient to review material at leisure and may free the nurse for other responsibilities.
