Patient Education Materials
"An educated consumer is our best customer" is the slogan of a major clothing store and health care is moving in the same direction. Patient safety and quality of care are improved when patients are involved in and educated about their care. It is our obligation to education our patients about their conditions and answer their questions in language they can understand.
This page offers easy-to-understand education materials that you should hand out to your patients as appropriate.
