Intended for a multidisciplinary team of providers, Teaching Strategies for Health Care and Health establishes a foundation of how, why, what, and when people of all ages learn and how learning can positively affect a patient, a family, and a diverse community’s ability to understand, manage, prevent and live well with their illness.

Designed to give health professionals the tools they need to provide total patient care, this unique resource presents a foundation as well as a selection of tools and teaching methodologies to promote health and prevention of illness. Unique to this resource are experience driven case studies demonstrating both successful and unsuccessful cases, helping health care professionals identify best practices to preserve and repeat, as well as analyze why unsuccessful efforts might have failed and how those cases could be handled differently.
