Teach-Back: Learn to use this proven, effective patient education strategy

AHRQ, AMA, ACP and other leading healthcare organizations mandate the use of “Teach-Back” to ensure patients understand medication schedules, self-care instructions and risks and benefits of therapies. Research has shown that utilizing the Teach-Back technique raises patient satisfaction, increases trust in healthcare providers and helps patients feel more relaxed.

The Patient Education Center is providing in-service sessions to help clinicians master the skills and strategies of Teach-Back. The sessions are available by request to all units and areas that request it.
To request an in-service in your area please fill out this short online form.
If you have any questions please email Kimberly Wright, Administrative Assistant for the Patient Education Program at krtravis@umich.edu.
