Take some time to peruse ASH’s video library, which features a number of films produced on various topics, including Society programs such as the Clinical Research Training Institute, ASH’s history, and various award winners, as well as a trailer and clips from the hematology documentary “Blood Detectives.” These videos were created for educational purposes, and we encourage you to share them with your patients or students. The following short films are included in the ASH video library:
- “What Is Hematology?” provides basic information about the types of diseases that hematologists study and treat, as well as the importance of having a hematologist as part of a patient’s health-care team. This film is a quick introduction to hematology that could be shared with new patients or shown to students with little knowledge of the field.
- In “Why Choose Hematology?” hematologists in both research and practice talk about the challenges and rewards of pursuing a career in hematology. You might consider screening this short film for medical students who are in the process of choosing their career path or high school students to engage their interest in science and medicine.
“Research Saves Lives” highlights the critical connection between advances made in the treatment and care of people affected by blood disorders and the federal funding of biomedical research. You can help make a difference by sharing this film with others and encouraging them to voice support for increased research funding by using the online ASH Advocacy Center
to contact Congress.
- Colorful blood disease animations and “A Patient’s Journey” film clips taken from “Blood Detectives” are available on a variety of topics and blood disorders and can be a valuable teaching tool in explaining blood conditions and diagnosis and treatment options to your patients or students. These videos can be used when giving presentations on blood disorders including anemia, bleeding and clotting disorders, and blood cancers or as a helpful health education resource for your patients.
All of these films are available on YouTube and are accessible from ASH’s YouTube page. Be sure to sign up through YouTube to be notified of new additions to the ASH video library.
