Health Education & Content Services
This seminar recognizes the important role of clinicians in engaging and educating patients. Despite technological advances and increased availability of health information, patients face numerous barriers to accessing, understanding, and applying reliable health information. Because patients can be overwhelmed by information and the burdens of managing their health, providing relevant patient education that fits the patient’s capacity, is a compassionate act.
This one-hour seminar includes expert lecture, participant discussion, and opportunity for question and answer. The seminar will be presented live at Mayo Clinic Rochester, Phillips Hall and will be live streamed to virtual participants.
This course is designed for the many disciplines and clinicians involved in providing patient education to medical patients, including physicians, advanced care providers, nurses, diabetes educators, dieticians, care coordinators, health coaches, those who develop and deliver patient education content, and all who contribute to informing and empowering patients.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Recognize your own strengths and style in communicating with patients.
- Consider how patient education contributes to "care that fits."
- Identify practical strategies for educating and engaging patients.
