White educational video
Patients will view an educational video that contains White physicians and patients.
African-American educational video
Patients will view an educational video that contains African-American physicians and patients.
Patients will receive counseling about their condition and treatment options.
- Decision to Receive an ICD [ Time Frame: 1 week post intervention ]At one week post-intervention, patients were asked what treatment option they preferred: ICD placement with medications; No ICD, continue with medications only; or unsure.
- Decisional Conflict Scale [ Time Frame: one week post intervention ]At one week post-intervention, patients were asked 9 questions from a modified decisional conflict scale to assess overall decisional conflict and three subscales (decision uncertainty; factors contributing to uncertainty; and perceived effective decision making). Overall scores range from 9 (no decisional conflict) to 45 (high decisional conflict).
- Receipt of an ICD [ Time Frame: 3 months ]Patients were asked (or medical records reviewed) to determine if patients did receive an ICD within approximately 3 months post intervention.
- Mean Knowledge Scores About ICD Therapy One Week Post Intervention. [ Time Frame: one week post intervention ]We assessed knowledge of ICD therapy prior to the educational intervention, directly after the educational intervention and one week later. The tool used was a 13 question tool on key aspects of ICDs, risks and benefits, and health conditions eligible for an ICD. Scores could range from 0-13, with higher score indicating greater levels of knowledge.
