Tools for Effective Patient Education


Have you ever had a patient who just doesn’t seem to follow directions, remember to take their medications, or adhere to their diet?  Or, have you ever felt communication with a certain patient is challenging?  You are not alone!  There are many reasons why these issues occur.  This application-based session will examine the problem of adherence, barriers patients face with adherence, and how we can educate and assist patients in successfully adhering.  Participants will leave with a “toolbox” of strategies that they can use to effectively communicate with and educate their patients on their medications and lifestyle changes.
