Storyboard Description

Patient teaching in management of chronic illness is very important and usually falls to the nurse. It is important that when educating a patient you remember to use easy to understand language without slang. And use the teach back method. Have the patient teach you what they know so you as the nurse and educator know they understood what they are learning.
