Teaching resources for health and social care

healthtalk.org holds more than 25,000 videos of people talking about their experiences of health and social care. The videos are used all over the world as a teaching and training resource for medicine, nursing, social care, allied health professions, sociology, psychology and many other subject areas.

For a small annual support fee we will approve your organisation* to use healthtalk.org video and text content in your work. Sign up below to enjoy the following benefits:

1) A vast library of resources: We have tens of thousands of video and audio clips of people sharing their experiences of more than 100 health conditions and social care related issues. Browse our range of patient videos.

2) Reliable content: All of the content is produced using qualitative research methods developed by the Health Experiences Research Group at the University of Oxford. The site is accredited by the NHS Information Standard and by the RCGP as a learning resource.

3) Resources that can enhance learning: Research by Snow et al (2016)** showed that learners’ knowledge retention, confidence and exam results were much improved when our patient experience videos were included in their learning.

4) Make your own playlist of our clips to share with learners using our Scrapbooks feature. You could also set learners the task of making their own scrapbooks.

5) Help us keep going: All revenue will be used to support the charity in maintaining the website and keeping it going for future learners and the public .
