Patient education resources can provide information specific to the patient’s health condition, their point in care (such as whether the patient is newly diagnosed or has been living with a condition), and health care decisions they may face. Providing patients with appropriate education resources can help them remember important information, improve their ability to manage their health, and increase their participation in informed decision-making.
