The potential of YouTube for something more than creative narcissismhomemade music videos, get well video cards and documentary promotions: patient education is showcased by five video clips (on using asthma inhalers and spacer devices, on blood sugar testing, and cervical cancer screening) from Builth & Llanwrtyd Medical Practice, a surgical practice in rural Mid Wales, UK. Spanish-speaking patients, and those who appreciate more artistic ventures, will appreciate Como Usar Su Inhalador and How to Recognize and Treat Fever in Children by amateur filmmaker Nathanial Smith with a team of Penn med and nursing students in Guatemala, a local family, and the local Hosptitalito Atitlan, for the Tzu’tujil people of the area—and now, the whole world.
