Approaches to Patient Education

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Join us for a four-part podium session that will give you fresh ideas for improving patient education and follow-up.  

  • Amy Singer will present "Enhancing Patient Education Through the Use of a Breast Biopsy Educational Booklet." She'll describe the positive impact that a breast biopsy booklet can have on patient learning and satisfaction.
  • Molley Henneberry will present "Discharge Isn't the End: We're Still Watching." She'll discuss the positive results of a leading institution's follow-up protocol, in which oncology nurses phoned patients 24–72 hours following discharge to monitor key symptoms, decrease readmissions, and document patient information. 
  • Denise Fleming will present "Before We Begin: Does a Pretreatment Education Phone Call Increase Satisfaction for the New Outpatient Chemotherapy Patient?" She'll identify the benefits of a pretreatment education phone call, a nursing intervention that increased patient satisfaction with the first chemotherapy experience.
  • Michelle Wasko will present "Making the Calls That Matter Most." She'll highlight how an interdisciplinary team at The James met new Medicare and Medicaid requirements for transitional care codes and decreased readmissions through telephone follow-up.
