Question Description

Patient education sessions need to evolve with the health care industry. This assignment challenges you to rethink patient education by looking at adult education principles as you guide patients to reputable sources for further review.

Create a patient education tool for the ailment you researched in this week's learning activity. The tool should promote patient competency and e-health literacy. Consider:

  • How patients can/will use the tool
  • Patient experience managing this ailment
  • Community resources such as public libraries, parks and recreation community centers, and neighborhood service centers for free computer and internet access
  • Patient ability to perform basic computer functions
  • Graphs, charts, labels, or other visual information the consumer is likely to see
  • Direction for how to search and apply relevant online information

Format your assignment as one of the following:

  • online module
  • trifold brochure
  • another format approved by your instructor, a PowerPoint Presentation would not be appropriate for this assignment as it is not something you can give to the patient.

Include a minimum of three scholarly sources and develop an APA-formatted reference page.

Explain your rationale for choosing the format on a new page in your reference page document.
