Discover three tools you can use to educate clients and build their independence

From cardiac rehab and diabetes management, to increasing mobility and functional independence, evidence shows that health focused education can play a valuable role in helping clients improve their quality of life. In fact, programs that include a therapeutic intervention along with an education component, as opposed to therapy alone, have been shown to be more effective in many settings.

The ability to effectively educate clients is an important skill for allied health professionals to have, and the practice of incorporating education into programs is becoming more and more common. However, evidence shows that education delivered by health professionals can often be sub-optimal. Education delivered in ways that don’t match instructional design principles, or that are strong on content but weak on engagement, can miss the mark from the client’s perspective.

In this webinar you’ll learn practical strategies for delivering education to clients in ways that work.

Learn how to:  

  • Deliver face-to-face education for clients (including in groups)
  • Create written educational materials for clients (like handouts and information sheets) that clients are more likely to use
  • Use specific educational techniques to increase engagement and rapport with clients

Designed to help you feel more comfortable using education as part of your role, take your existing health knowledge and combine it with a client education toolkit—full of evidence based educational strategies—to help nudge your clients towards better health, wellbeing and independence.

This free webinar will include Q&A and discussion.
