Multidrug-resistant organisms (MDROs) infection is an international public health problem. Patients are at risk for MDROs infections due to many factors. Therefore, providing education on preventing MDROs infections for patients is crucial. This developmental research study aimed to develop video media for MDROs infection prevention for patients. The sample consisted of 42 patients undergoing treatment at a university hospital in Bangkok from November 2018 to May 2019. Research instruments included a development and design plan for the video media, a video media user opinion questionnaire, a demographic data questionnaire, a knowledge test on preventing MDROs infections, and a video media satisfaction questionnaire, all of which were validated by six content experts and three media experts. The content validity index of the knowledge test and the video media satisfaction questionnaire were .96 and 1.00 respectively, and the reliability were .72 and .91 respectively. The efficiency of the video media was tested using one-to-one, small group, and field test. Data were analyzed using descriptive statistics.

The video media developed for this study included two sections. Section one focused on MDROs infections in patients providing information on the definition of MDROs, factors related to MDROs infections in patients, the impact of MDROs infections in patients, and mode of transmissions of MDROs infections. Section two contained information on practices for preventing MDROs infections. The efficiency of the video media was 1.21, achieving Meguigans’s standard criteria of 1.00. User satisfaction of the video media was highest for content (4.30-4.83), design and presentation (4.57-4.77), and usability (4.87-4.90).

 The results of the study show that the video media increased knowledge on MDROs infection prevention in patients, and should be disseminated to patients who are undergoing treatment in the hospital to increase knowledge, thus improving MDROs infection prevention practice.
