About Patient Education
Patient education is the process of assisting people in learning about their health care and influencing behaviors to increase health and independence. Education of families is important in supporting the patient, with the expectation that patients and families will adapt and apply health practices to improve health care outcomes.
This module will enable the RN to identify methods to assess patient and family learning needs, create learning opportunities, and promote an open learning environment in which the learner works toward self-management and optimal health.
