Appropriate patient education is imperative during appointments and hospital stays to ensure patients are armed with the necessary tools to be successful once they return home. Unfortunately, all people learn differently, and literacy (health literacy as well) levels vary across the nation. Respiratory therapists must personalize general educational information that would best fit that patient versus of using materials and techniques that simply cater to their diagnosis.
