The trusted source for
healthcare information and
Web sites with teaching sheets to aid education
(In 2008 Patient Education Management will run more articles with suggestions for saving you time, which is a valuable resource. Time-savers will include references to educational materials, work tips such as juggling staff and patient education, or programs that can provide patterns for other institutions to follow.
With this issue we begin with a list of resources for patient education materials. )
An important part of most job descriptions for patient education managers is the creation of teaching sheets. While many institutions elect to create material that is unique to their health care needs, those who do the work agree that it is easier to edit sheets with an author's permission than to start with a blank piece of paper.
Patient Education Management has collected a few web sites that provide access to teaching sheets. Contact information is available on the site for permission to use parts of the material.
In addition, there are web sites that provide teaching sheets in a variety of languages. Patient education managers know that translating materials from English to a foreign language can be costly, yet teaching sheets for non-English-speaking patients are vital for comprehensive education.
