Summaries and Reviews description: Product Description: Oncology patients experience tremendous emotional and physical stress as they withstand the rigors of therapy. Just when nutrition becomes most critical, their interest and energy may diminish. As a patient educator, you know you have serious competition for your clients’ time and attention. For the most practical, most current, and most dependable materials, now you can turn to the Oncology Diet and Nutrition Patient Education Resource Manual. This treasury of proven patient education materials is edited by an expert team of professionals dedicated to identifying the best, most helpful information on nutrition and side effects of cancer treatment and presenting it for your immediate use. They provide materials from top health care facilities across the country – such as the National Cancer Institute, The University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics, and Yale-New Haven Medical Center – as well as handouts developed specifically for this manual. The manual opens with a Tracking Form you can photocopy and individualize to chart your clients’ progress. Recognizing that information must be understandable in order to be useful, the first chapter of the manual is a concise review of Effective Patient Education. Throughout the manual, you’ll find the most essential patient handouts in both English and Spanish, in two literacy levels. To maximize patient compliance and minimize obstacles to learning, the handouts are simple, specific, and short, with helpful illustrations to reinforce learning.
