Abstract

Daily clinical practice has shown that patients are often hesitant to undergo a lumbar puncture (LP) because of unfamiliarity with the awaiting procedure and/or unrealistic ideas concerning post-LP complications. In light of increased number of LPs in diagnostic and research settings, our institute has developed an educational video for patients and caregivers in which we inform them about and prepare them for the LP procedure. This video was based on the latest literature and was developed with the help of communication experts, medical doctors, and two separate patient panels.
