Editorial Reviews

Doody's Review Service
Reviewer: Joyce E. Dains, DrPH, RN, CS (Baylor College of Medicine)
Description: This manual compiles a variety of patient education materials for the primary care setting. The first chapter is intended for use by primary care providers in designing a patient education program. The subsequent chapters are patient education materials and handouts.
Purpose: This manual is intended as a reference for designing and establishing a patient education program, and as a resource to be used for patient teaching. To a certain degree it achieves both objectives.
Audience: While designed for primary care providers, the ultimate audience is patients who are intended as the recipients of the bulk of the materials in the manual.
Features: A patient guideline for utilization of on-line materials is a useful feature of the first chapter. The patient education materials are compiled from well known and credible sources, and each is source-referenced. A diskette that contains many of the topics accompanies the manual and gives the user the opportunity to modify and individualize the existing materials. An appendix of resource agencies, complete with phone numbers and Internet addresses, is an excellent feature. The manual is a three-ring binder that makes removal of materials easy and convenient. The materials are organized by systems in tabbed sections that facilitate easy access to specific topics.
Assessment: Topic coverage is broad and appropriate for primary care, with a few notable exceptions. The material on headaches is surprisingly skimpy. The topics of menopause and hormone replacement therapy are not included at all. Few topics are applicable to children. A literacy level rating of each material would have been useful. Nonetheless, the manual is a useful collection of ready-to-go patient education materials. With promised annual supplements, the manual can help primary care providers keep patient education materials current and conveniently available for immediate use.
