Course Description

Rehab Nursing Series Course 6

Focus: Becoming more efficient and effective at patient/family education

Patient education is not simply checking off a list of topics reviewed with patients and their home caregivers. It is about engaging them in self-care and self-management of their health needs.

This course reviews how people learn and remember, identifying principles and strategies for efficient and effective education and practice toward patient/home caregiver competence.


Course Chapters

Chapter 1 Make a Difference!

Rehab nurses are teachers. We teach in every interaction—intentionally or unintentionally.

  • Why do we teach?

Chapter 2 Learning & Remembering

You cannot teach effectively if you do not understand how people learn and remember. This chapter reviews what we know about how people learn and remember.

  • How does working memory work?

  • Why is it important to pay attention to prior knowledge?

  • What makes it easier for the learner to retrieve information when it is needed?

Chapter 3 Education Strategies for Rehabilitation

The rehab team can apply principles of how people learn to their teaching activities and facilitate patient and home caregiver learning in an efficient and effective manner. This chapter reviews the top 10 strategies for making that happen.
