Will They Actually Use It? Teaching Effectively to Ensure Action on Healthcare Information
Breakout Sessions - Friday Morning
9:00 AM - 10:30 AMFri
Bonnie Ronan, MN, RN
Patient Family Education Coordinator
An important part of health literacy is actually using information that has been taught. How can we ensure that what we teach is acted on appropriately? Teach-back and principles of adult learning are important in making sure information is understood, but don’t guarantee the learner will actually use it. For healthcare education to be truly effective, it must be acted on. As with any skill, teaching effectively requires practice. In this interactive session participants will learn and apply practical strategies for both teaching and ensuring action on healthcare information.
This year the breakout sessions are categorized by content domains established by the Job Analysis Task Force to describe competencies of a Health Literacy Specialist.
*This is an Education domain course.
