Description

Nurses are often urged to help patients learn about their illness and the self-management measures that may enable them to achieve a degree of independence after they have left hospital. However, little has been written about the practical process of facilitating patient learning while the patient makes sense of their circumstances and considers what they can do to manage any necessary lifestyle changes. Educational articles tend to focus on programmed learning, such as educational courses delivered to groups of patients with similar conditions. This learning module assists the nurse in reviewing what learning might entail for a patient and to explore why this type of learning is different to learning in other circumstances.

Objectives

After reading this module you should be able to:
Review your current understanding of learning and explain why learning is different for patients.
Describe what is meant by ‘education’.
Outline why emotional support is crucial to patients learning to self-care after an illness or injury.
Examine the importance of attitudes, beliefs and values in helping patients to believe that they can take responsibility for their health after an illness or injury.
Describe some simple measures to enable initiation of the learning process, as a basis for further learning when the patient returns home.
