1. Domains of Adult Education
Much emphasis exists today on strategies to engage patients as full partners in their healthcare. One of those strategies is through rehabilitation nurses’ direct interaction with and education of patients and families. Education is more than one-way communication, handing a patient an education brochure, and/or discharge planning. This session shapes rehabilitation nurses’ approach to patient and family education by focusing on teachable domains of learning.
2. Redesign Patient Education Approaches
Rehabilitation nurses engage in formal and informal patient and family education opportunities. However, the majority of such engagement remains informal, without two-way communication methods to evaluate effectiveness of teaching or learning. Health literacy tools enable the redesign of patient education approaches to maximize patient learning.
3. Approaches and Tools to Evaluate Patient Education
Systems theory provides the theoretical approach that reinforces education is not a one-way process, rather an open system of communication between a sender and a receiver. Engaging patient education as an open system approach requires that rehabilitation nurses as educators remain mindful of the environmental and interaction factors that facilitate or impede exchange of information and successful learning. Tools to evaluate successful learning will be presented so rehabilitation nurses can measure education outcomes.
