Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Andrea D. Posey, RN, BSN, MSN (University of Alaska Anchorage)
Description: This book contains information about how and when to conduct patient education in the busy healthcare environment.
Purpose: The purpose is to persuade nurses to provide patient and family education that helps in providing cost-effective patient care. It also offers nurses the tools to carry out patient education. These objectives are met in this publication.
Audience: The target audience is healthcare professionals. The writing is aimed at this audience and is at an appropriate reading level. There are many colloquialisms used in this book, which make it appealing to a wide variety of people. There is no biography of the author included.
Features: This publication covers many aspects of patient teaching and the challenges nurses face when they try to accomplish their education goals. Some interesting points include "teachable moments," writing teaching materials, and the use of electronic media and computers. There are many illustrations and tables that assist the reader in gleaning information quickly. Cartoons and humor are also scattered throughout the pages. The only shortcoming may be the relaxed and informal writing style; however, this may be appealing to some audiences.
Assessment: This book presents the challenges of patient education in the busy healthcare arena in a relaxed and easy to read manner. The author offers practical solutions to problems and encourages nurses to take every opportunity to teach. She reminds us that patient teaching is a part of the nursing process and a key component in the delivery of quality healthcare. Those who find themselves confronted with the task of teaching patients while completing busy clinical assignments will find this book a useful tool. The strategies and suggestions are very helpful. This is certainly not a dry education textbook.
