Has anyone tackled standardizing patient education materials "across the
continuum"?.........At our organization, we'd be looking at ER, Med Surg,
ICU, Transitional Care, Homecare and possibly Medical Group
practices..........with nurses/pharmacists/physical
therapists/nutritrionists as key interacting personnel.

I'd appreciate offlist response from anyone who has been down this path
before.........everything from policy & procedure, literacy & format
issues, storage & inventory control.........

My goal is "roving wireless laptop" patient education ........MedlinePlus
certainly is approaching  as the leading tool.....but right now our nurses
don't have enough computers/fast enough printers/time to choose the right
page/print it out and review it with the we still
rely on the pre-printed brochures/education sheets in the pendaflex file.


thank you, in advance to anyone interested in comparing notes & sharing
their success
I'll summarize if there is any significant response
