AMS launches Solutions to Educate Patients Programme (STEP) in Europe

American Medical Systems : 19 January, 2011  (Company News)
American Medical Systems (AMS), a provider of world-class devices and therapies for male and female pelvic health, is launching the company’s Solutions to Educate Patients Programme (STEP) in Europe.
The programme is designed to help healthcare providers better educate patients and the community about solutions for the treatment of erectile dysfunction (ED) and male stress urinary incontinence (SUI). AMS is the first company in Europe to launch such a programme and provide these types of educational materials to patients suffering from ED and SUI.

The STEP toolkit provides a comprehensive, easy-to-use system that empowers healthcare providers with a wide range of in-office educational materials, patient outreach collateral, seminars and web resources to help guide and inspire men who suffer with ED and SUI to take action to restore their quality of life.

'Millions of men struggle every day with troublesome ED and incontinence symptoms that prevent them from fully enjoying time with their partners, family and friends,' said Whitney Erickson, Vice President and General Manager for Men's Health at AMS. 'Today's treatment options mean there's no reason anyone should suffer in silence. The tools provided in the STEP programme can help men overcome feelings of embarrassment about their symptoms, empower them with information about the wide range of options available and help them find one that's right for their needs.'

The STEP programme puts all of the tools and templates hospitals need right at their fingertips, including:

- Office-based patient education material that can be used in the office, where patients feel most comfortable discussing these sensitive issues. ED and SUI brochures and posters provide insight into the causes and treatment options that can encourage men to speak up about their symptoms and inquire about treatment.

- Patient outreach materials that can help build awareness of ED and SUI options and encourage men to make an appointment with their physician to discuss their symptoms. A range of templates for creating customised direct mail campaigns, newsletters and billing inserts are available.

- Men's health seminars are one of the most effective ways to educate men and their partners about ED and SUI solutions. The AMS STEP programme makes it easy to host a seminar with a simple, integrated approach including materials and guidance for planning an event-or a series of events.

- Web resources enable tech-savvy patients to access information about ED and SUI solutions from the comfort and privacy of their own home. The STEP programme allows hospitals to enhance their own website with trusted information from AMS about treatment options.

- Health month campaigns provide an opportunity to increase overall awareness of ED, SUI and other men's health-related issues, as well as the physician's expertise in these areas. The STEP programme includes a number of themed campaigns created by AMS that can be tied in with special health awareness opportunities throughout the year.
