Tip of The Week- Patient Education
Patient education is one of the most important service that nurses can provide. Though most nurses may not have the time to perform patient teachings, it is not an excuse to dismiss the task. Patient understanding on their illness and the treatment process they have to go through is essential for them to cooperate and ensure post-discharge compliance especially for disorders needing permanent lifestyle or diet changes and maintenance medications.
For the teaching process to be a success, nurses should consider factors that may hinder understanding like language barriers, cultural differences, education, and age.
For tips on how to perform a successful patient teaching session and making patient handouts, refer to the links below.
