  1. Click      to download the Patient Teaching Plan Form (Links to an external      site.).
    Type your answers directly into this Word document and submit. The      use of correct terminology, grammar, and spelling is important! Any      references and citations used should be written in APA format. Please      utilize in-text citations when appropriate, and list all references in the      space provided at the end of the worksheet. Health Topic: Decide WHAT you      would like to teach. Describe in detail why this is an important      topic for patient education. Use evidence from the textbook, lesson or an      outside scholarly source to support your rationale.

Select from the following health topics to complete your Patient Teaching Project:

  • Stress       and Time Management
  • Self-Care       (can choose a specific self-care activity)
  • Prevention       of Hazards at Work
  • Bicycle       Safety
  • Ergonomics       (related to work, posture)
  • Skin       Cancer Prevention
  • Healthy       Eating
  • Exercise/Physical       Activity
  • Suicide
  • Human       Trafficking
  • Eating       Disorders
  • Substance       Abuse (Opioid, Alcohol, Nicotine)
  • Depression
  • Palliative       Care/Hospice Care
  1. Population      and Setting: Once you have selected a topic, you must decide WHO you      will be teaching and WHERE the education will take place.      (i.e., teaching a classroom of middle school students; teaching community      members at a local health fair)
  2. Learning      Barriers: Refer to the assigned article: Educating patients:      Understanding barriers, learning styles, and teaching techniques for      information related to learning barriers and other teaching      considerations. Barriers might be cultural, physical, educational, or      environmental. You may also want to consider the developmental stages of      your selected population.

Example:

  • The       population in this community is known to have a low-literacy level,       therefore clear pictures and graphics will be utilized to assist with       understanding.
  1. Learning      Objectives: Write three specific learning objectives      your Visual Teaching Tool will address. Begin each objective with “At      the end of this education, the learner will …” Use an action verb      to finish the sentence (i.e., list, demonstrate, describe, define,      identify).

Example:

  • At       the end of this education, the learner will be able to demonstrate the       proper way to wear a bike helmet.
  • At       the end of this education, the learner will be able to describe how to       perform a breast self-exam.
  • At       the end of this education, the learner will be able to list three benefits       of regular physical activity.
  1. Evaluation: Write      a paragraph describing how you could evaluate whether your visual teaching      tool was successful and met the learning objectives. Consider the      population’s abilities and the setting.

Second part Visual Tool

Educational Brochure (Using Microsoft Word)

Directions: You must use the Patient Teaching Plan you have developed in this course to create your Visual Teaching Tool.

  1. Open      Microsoft Word, and select create a New document.

Under the Education option, select Education Brochure. This will provide you with a blank tri-fold brochure template. You can change the design, insert graphics, and create text as you wish.

  1. The      goal of this Educational Brochure is to address the three learning      outcomes you developed in the Patient Teaching Plan. Once the learner has      viewed your Educational Brochure, all three of the learning objectives      should have been met.

For Example:

If a learning objective in the Patient Teaching Plan is: “At the end of this education, the learner will be able to demonstrate the proper way to wear a bike helmet,” then there should be content in your Educational Brochure related to how to properly wear a bike helmet.
