Clinical Problem


Clinical Problem:

PICO Question: In hospital settings, how does using informational handouts to educate patients about medication side effects improve their acquired knowledge compared to relying on the nurses’ verbal education alone?

Analysis of Evidence

Focusing on making sure that the patient understood the medication, its generic name and at least five possible side effects, helped improve the satisfaction. Pamphlets are handed to patients in language that they understand, and they are encouraged to ask questions.

The use of Teach-back toolkit allowed nurses and caregivers to better understand the medication.

Evidence-Based Protocol
