Everyone has the right to understand.
The MUHC Patient Education Office is dedicated to patient education. Using new and innovative approaches that are rich in images with limited text, the teams develops material to support patient and family understanding and to assist MUHC patients as they make informed decisions with their healthcare teams. All material is developed by interprofessional teams of clinical content experts (including nurses, doctors, physiotherapists, pharmacists, nutritionists and others) working with healthcare educators and artists.
Integrated within all patient education material are principles of health literacy and learning, in support of a truly patient-centered approach to care. The MUHC Patient Education Office is committed to ensuring that patients and families receive timely, clear, and helpful information, based on individual requirements and models of comprehensive care.
