For Your Patients

Recognizing the critical role of the patient in their recovery, the 鶹ýis committed to providing engaging and effective patient education programs

For Your Patients

We’re Here for You and Your Patients

Our primary mission at the 鶹ýis to train surgeons for better patient care and outcomes. Our evidence-based programs support you and your patients with effective and efficient surgical patient education programs for the best possible outcomes and recovery.

Patient and Caregiver Skills Training Programs

The skill training programs explain, demonstrate, and provide directed learning experiences and practice opportunities. Given in advance of surgery, they afford patients/caregivers the opportunity of repetitive practice, and the confidence to actively participate in their care and safely continue their recovery following discharge.

Safe and Effective Pain Control

Communicating and setting expectations with patients about the best way to manage their post-operative pain has successfully decreased long-term opioid use, misuse, and diversion of opioids into the community. The 鶹ýoffers consensus-developed patient education programs including print, web-based, video, and e-learning along with professional courses on effective pain control options.
