Overview

Written by a nursing expert and former Chair of patient education for the Society of Teachers of Family Medicine, Effective Patient Education: A Guide to Increased Adherence, Fourth Edition gives clinicians the tools they need to become effective patient educators. Using a patient-centered approach, this essential text provides specific strategies for communicating in a way that motivates patients to take action. Crucial to this approach is an understanding of the patient as a partner in the patient education process. The text uncovers patient concerns and challenges that may interfere with patient adherence to recommendations, enabling clinicians to gain insight into their patients and devise communication strategies that can empower patients to overcome obstacles. In addition, this completely revised and updated edition explores the challenges that clinicians may face in conducting patient education. Using case examples to illustrate key points, this text moves beyond theory to offer practical application principles for the real world. Featuring a clinical approach in examining established patient-education theories, Effective Patient Education: A Guide to Increased Adherence, Fourth Edition is an invaluable guide for nursing students and professionals!

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Reviewer: Lynda H Crawford, PhD (West Suburban College of Nursing)
Description: The author approaches patient education from a patient-centered teaching perspective, an active process in which patient and provider are partners who work together to meet mutually agreed-upon goals.
Purpose: She describes a patient-centered approach to patient teaching and explores the issues that prevent education efforts from being effective. Few books have approached this topic with the patients as partners in the process. This book has been needed for some time!
Audience: It is written for health professionals and is extremely useful for nursing students. As a registered nurse, licensed psychologist, and certified rehabilitation counselor, Dr. Falvo is uniquely positioned as an expert on patient-centered education. She has been a leader in this area for many years.
Features: As the author points out, patients must value any education efforts and will not adhere to well-intended advice unless they perceive value in doing so. She describes patient-centered teaching, where providers create a partnership with patients. Issues that can create barriers to achieving mutually established goals are discussed in detail, providing a thorough compilation of essential information. This is useful as a teaching tool and reference for healthcare professionals.
Assessment: The author has succeeded in producing a book that covers beautifully the task of teaching patients. The perspectives of patients and the challenges they face are presented with enough detail to be useful to novice as well as expert providers. This is the best book on this topic to date.
