Brief Summary:
This randomized control trial will compare traditional patient education methods (pamphlets, clinical visits) to the implementation of an innovated patient education platform. The purpose of the project is to determine whether the use of this animation based patient education platform prior to undergoing surgery will lead to improved patient satisfaction and quality of life.

Condition or disease Intervention/treatment Phase
Patient Satisfaction Surgery Other: Precare Other: usual standard of care Not Applicable

Detailed Description:

Hypothesis/Study question:

Does the implementation of an animation based patient education platform prior to undergoing surgery lead to improved patient satisfaction and quality of life?

Study objectives:

Help address patient gaps in understanding, reduce learning barriers in order for patients to make informed decisions, improve behaviors, and better partner with their health providers to attain optimal health outcomes

Methodology / Study design:

Patients will receive access to the patient education platform during the clinical visit in which they receive their diagnosis, and will be asked if they wish to enroll in the study consisting of completing questionnaires before and after their surgical procedure. Questions will inquire on levels of anxiety, patient satisfaction, knowledge retention, and platform feedback.
