In January 2007, Patient & Family Teaching was established as one of the recent programs supported by the Nursing Department. The purpose of the center is to promptly identify patient/family educational needs in order to facilitate the understanding of the patient’s health status and care options, and increase their potential to follow a therapeutic health care plan and promote a healthy patient lifestyle.
