We must be aware of the patient's knowledge and culture in order to properly help them. As nurses we must teach them the proper education. For example, working in the hospital I would be surprised about the misconceptions patients have about their health. There is a lot of erroneous information that patients focus on. Is there a certain topic any of you have come across with your patients that is common?

Poverty and lack of education, along with other social determinants, are proven barriers to healthcare. Various measures of health quality, including low life expectancies and high mortality rates, correlate to low levels of education.(united for sight) There are several method to overcome those educational barriers. One of the method is to make sure the reading material is 6 th grade level. (modern medicine) It is very important that the nurses do their assessment on what the patient learning level. It is easy to accommodate if the nurse knows the patient education level.
