How to find patient education content

Krames Staywell patient education content

Krames Staywell is VUMC's vendor for patient education materials and videos across the clinical enterprise, including adult and pediatric content. Links to Krames' content will be available inside clinical applications (look in Star under "Resources"), on Eskind Digital Library website and here.

FULL Krames           PEDIATRIC Krames

Krames' documents are branded with the appropriate VUMC or Children's Hospital logo and can be personalized for each patient. If you want to switch between browsing all content and browsing pediatric content, you must first "Sign Out" of the Krames site you are logged into.


Look on eDocs

Eventually eDocs' patient education content will be phased out, as we intergrate Krames patient education materials into our clinical delivery systems. In the meantime, browse for existing patient education content created at Vanderbilt by going to eDocs.
