Plan Your Visit

How can I or my family learn more about my condition?

Our goal is to educate you and your family as much as possible about your care plan and treatment both before and during your stay. UAB Hospital provides a wide variety of education through one-on-one personalized training by your care team and educational videos on Emmi. Emmi® is a web-based program that takes complex medical information and explains it in a way that is easy to understand. Using animation and a soothing female voice, Emmi helps you prepare for an upcoming procedure, learn more about certain treatments, or manage a chronic condition. We encourage you and your family care partners to watch these videos and be involved in education regarding your health, including tests, procedures, medications, and disease processes.

Getting started is easy!
