Abstract:
Poster Presentation: The Health System achieves a dynamic collaboration amongst Hospital Departments, University Programs and Community Agencies with the goal of a comprehensive Patient and Family Education Program. The process of developing the program will be reviewed. When the program started two year ago the issues which were explored and addressed included: definitions of "information" and "education"; translation of documents; informed consent; culture and literacy; consistency of materials, approach and documentation throughout the health system and out to the community; the role of various disciplines in patient and family education; staff education; and documentation. We are creating a repository for patient education materials (including staff-created teaching DVDs) so they will be available across the continuum of care. Patient Safety Goal #13, Encouraging Patients' Active Involvement in their own care, has led to programs to provide education and empowerment proactively to patients and families. Community Outreach programs which have grown out of the collaboration include "First Saturday Health Screenings" (an evidence based health screening initiative), "Active Living Social Marketing Campaign" (a community program to increase access to exercise opportunities), "Health Literacy"(a campaign to insert health related curriculum into ESL and literacy training programs) and "Partnering with Your Doctor" (education about playing a active role in care). Outcomes, materials, resources and forms will be demonstrated.
