patient friendly education

Comprehensive, patient-friendly guides that contain trusted information about the diagnosis, treatment, side effects, and psychosocial effects of a specific cancer. Five titles are available to download as a PDF in English or Spanish here:

Learn about the importance of pain relief, including its causes, how it is diagnosed, and types of pain-relief strategies. This booklet also includes a pain tracking sheet to help patients record how pain affects them.

On this page you will find a variety of educational information about vaccines and the diseases they prevent. For each vaccine, you can access information about who should receive the vaccine, when it should be administered, and what patients or parents should know about it. Immunization providers can also find more general information on vaccine administration as well as tips on how to talk to your patients about vaccines and address their concerns.

Immunization educational materials are intended to complement personal education and advice from the healthcare provider. Informed patients, working together with their healthcare providers, are the key players in keeping themselves and their children healthy and protecting the health of the public.

Conclusions: We demonstrate the feasibility of training hospital staff about dementia and its impact on patient outcomes. At baseline, there was low knowledge and confidence in the ability to care for dementia patients. Training had an immediate impact on knowledge, confidence, and attitudes with lasting impact in 3 of 4 hospitals. We identified targets for intervention and the need for ongoing training and administrative reinforcement to sustain behavioral change. Community resources, such as local chapters of the Alzheimer Association, may be key community partners in improving care outcomes for hospitalized persons with dementia.

In addition, she said nurse coordinators determined patients were not reading the material, and were leaving the books at home; nurses, therefore, could not review the material with them. Compliance with important instructions related to patient care before and after transplant was suboptimal, and patients were being readmitted for preventable problems.

The use of augmented reality (AR) has a rich history and is used in a number of fields. Its application in healthcare and anatomy education is developing considerable interest. However, although its popularity is on the rise, its use as an educational and practical tool has not been sufficiently evaluated, especially with children. Therefore, this study presents the design, development and evaluation of an educational tablet-based application with AR functionality for children. A distal radius fracture was chosen, as it is one of the more common fractures in the younger age group. Following a standardized software engineering methodology, we identified functional and non-functional requirements, creating a child-friendly tablet based AR application. This used industry standard software and incorporated three-dimensional models of a buckle fracture, object and image target marker recognition, interactivity and educational elements. In addition, we surveyed children at the Glasgow Science Centre on its usability, design and educational effectiveness. Seventy-one children completed a questionnaire (25 also underwent a short structured interview). Overall, the feedback was positive relating to entertainment value, graphic design, usability and educational scope of the application. Notably, it was shown to increase user understanding of radiology across all age groups following a trial of the application. This study shows the great potential of using digital technologies, and more particularly augmented information, in engaging future generations in science from a young age. Creation of educational materials using digital technologies, and evaluating its effectiveness, highlights the great scope novel technology could have in anatomical education and training.

The American Kidney Fund (AKF) constantly strives to develop the most relevant, helpful and innovative education and communications materials to support the kidney community in the fight against kidney disease. For these efforts, AKF's education and advocacy campaigns and materials have received many prestigious awards in recent years.

AASM has created patient-friendly guides to provide simple, key information, using terminology that is more widely understood. These are designed to help patients understand diagnosis and treatment options recommended by the AASM.

Oral Chemotherapy Education (OCE) was conceived by NCODA as a resource to provide information about oral chemotherapy drugs and their side effects to both cancer patients and caregivers. We know having cancer or caring for someone with it can be overwhelming, but finding reliable information about the medicines should not. We aim to help caregivers by providing them a tool to pass on to their patients with cancer that will answer drug related questions and help empower patients to become a more active participant in their cancer treatment.

Through OCE, these partners and many participating sponsors endeavor to maintain a comprehensive, up-to-date library of OCE Sheets for all commercially available oral cancer drugs. The OCE sheets are available on this website free-of-charge as a resource for patients with cancer and their caregivers.

The NCODA OCE Maintenance Team reviews the education regarding clinical changes and updates on a routine basis with varying frequencies of review based on the nature of the material. The education is reviewed quarterly for updates by clinical pharmacists across the country, however we also strive to stay up-to-date on major and immediate changes, so that we are able to ensure that the education is as current as possible.

The OCE documents are available for print and download. While in their electronic format, the documents are also editable in the designated form sections for customization such as for additional counseling notes and/or specific contact information for patient communication

Older adults are living and working longer, redefining later life, and enriching our communities. The future of health care requires bold approaches that value older adults, address their unique needs, and provide them with the best care possible. Improving the way we care for older adults also makes good business sense for hospitals and health systems: Delivering better care to older adults in every setting can help us achieve fewer avoidable hospital readmissions, better outcomes, more satisfied patients and families, and lower overall costs.

Through the proposed Ambulatory Care Extension effort, we have developed educational and practice-based tools as well as age-specific, patient-friendly resources during the implementation the Age-Friendly Health Systems initiative within the CVS MinuteClinic health system.

Assess the existing age-friendly evaluation metrics of the Age-Friendly Health Systems initiative and the needs of the CVS MinuteClinic in order to develop a process through which to embed age-friendly process and outcome measures into the CVS MinuteClinic electronic health record platform, Epic.

The Asthma Friendly Schools Initiative provides a framework and tools that communities and schools can use to work together on a comprehensive approach to asthma management, including planning tools, policy recommendations, and education programs.

AAKP offers a variety of educational resources for people living with kidney disease and their care partners. Below is a list of FREE downloadable resources. Many of these same resources are also available in print form in our online store and can be ordered.

The FDA Oncology Center of Excellence Patient-Friendly Language Project began with the need to update the definitions of common terms used in cancer clinical trials for better understanding and use by healthcare providers and patients.

This glossary addresses selected words and phrases that patients with cancer have identified as particularly difficult to understand when discussing potential participation in a clinical trial or reading an informed consent document. For terms not included in this list, please refer to the NCI Glossary. 041b061a72
