I agree that to achieve effective healthcare, it entails a lot of tasks and responsibilities which involves not just the health care provider but the patients and their families as well.It is very important to educate our patients even prior to discharge and the way we educate them really matters because the learnings that they can get depends on ourmeans of educating them. If most of the learnings are well absorbed, if not all, then less chances for patients being readmitted because they now know how to care for themselves and when proper care is done with other family members, it will then deter future admissions.What I always do as a nurse is I make sure that whenever I give instructions to my patients, at least one of the family member is around. I try to involve them in the process whenever possible making it easier for them to follow. With our computer era now and having all these advance technology, educating our patients through these, I agree is the most effective technique. I find giving verbal instructions the least effective technique as well because not all people have retentive memory so they tend to forget the instructions after a few days so doing it verbally followed by a written material will be more effective.When we succeed in educating our patients, do we feel accomplished? Does this give us personal satisfaction?

Communication withthe patients is essential, but also ensuring good communication with the familyis key as those individuals are the individual’s support system when they’re not in a structured environment.In order to tailor the learning toward the individual and their families 3 questions need to be answered.1. What broad public health and social goals guide the proposed educational program?
