Patient Teaching Philosophy

I like how you mention the person teaching needs to know and understand the background of the patient's needs rather than just going through the motions, as nurses we are educator every day. Nurses quite often are on autopilot and multitasking, but I feel it is the nurses responsibility to make sure the patient and family understand what to expect to their care plan regarding their health. I agree the objective has to be clear on both ends. When patients needs and capabilities are considered, then the best method are utilized to approach teaching in a way they will comprehend the information provided. The information should be specific to their health issue, leaving room for questions or asking a question to assess their understanding is important.
