Abstract:
Podium Presentation: BRIEF DESCRIPTION: This session will describe how a nurse led multidisciplinary team of experts developed a disease and population specific patient educational manual for military veterans who have experienced a stroke. The addition of a self-management aspect makes this manual uniquely different from other educational manuals. ABSTRACT: In 2008 an estimated 500,000 persons will experience a first time stroke and 15% to 30% will become permanently disabled. The Veterans Health Administration provides healthcare services to 7.9 million veterans including approximately 15,000 annual hospitalizions for stroke at a cost of nearly $111 million dollars for acute inpatient care alone. Instituting lifestyle and behavior changes will reduce primary and secondary stroke risks. Empowering patients to self manage allows for the integration of learned knowledge into practical application. Rationale Following a stroke, cognitive abilities are impaired, requiring additional methods to support the educational information patients receive. National publications do not address the unique issues of the veteran population. Often patient educational materials present multiple complex concepts at a time and are written at a high reading level. Developing a veteran-friendly education tool was the primary focus of this project. Purpose Increasing stroke risk factor awareness and education of controllable risk factors to promote behavior change is paramount. It was the intent of this initiative to educate veterans and increase their awareness of stroke risk factor reduction strategies through an educational manual. Methods A nurse led multidisciplinary team of experts were assembled to develop a disease and population specific patient educational manual. The team consisted of nurses; physical, occupational, recreational, and speech therapists; a kinesiotherapist; a social worker; nutritionist; and physicians. Manual sections were developed by the respective content specialist, with the final approval by the hospital's Patient Education Committee. Mort Walker the creator of Beetle Bailey(c) joined the team as illustrator, generously and creatively supporting his comrades in their journey to reduce the risk of another stroke. The didactic components of the educational manual address: medication management, dietary compliance, smoking cessation, weight loss, increasing physical activity, improving functionality, and self-management (SM) skills. The addition of the self-management component makes this manual uniquely different and a clinical best practice tool. The patient is the central figure in his/her care and is supported by the health care team to assume a SM role.
