Leveraging Your Patient Teaching Skills

In this episode, Dr. Knight discusses the importance to leverage patient teaching skills using systematic frameworks such as Adult Learning Principles. It is critical that nurses understand not only what to teach clients but as well how to teach clients about their health. Collaborating with the patient and their family in a dynamic information sharing approach centers on the concepts of adult learning principles. These principles include:

  1. Need to Know
  2. Self-Concept
  3. The Role of Experience
  4. Readiness to Learn
  5. Orientation to Learning
  6. Motivation
