Prct 570: Patient-Caregiver-Provider Education
The purpose of this course is to prepare health professional students for their future role as educators. To achieve optimal health outcomes, health professionals must educate patients, caregivers, and health professional colleagues regarding a wide variety of health-related concepts and promote behavior change. However, few health professionals have had formal training in educational psychology or instructional design. Health professionals are often asked to design and develop units of instruction as part formal patient education programs (e.g., diabetes or asthma self-management education), professional development programs (e.g., continuing education), or degree programs (e.g., Doctor of Pharmacy, Doctor of Medicine, or Advance Practice Nursing). Individuals who are interested in careers in direct patient care roles, the professional development industry, or formal patient education programs are encouraged to take this course.
