Have you ever wondered if your patients understood what you just instructed them to do for better health?
What is the “Teach Back” technique?
The Teach Back technique is a simple mechanism for assessing a patients' understanding of a concept. It will also tell you how effective your method of teaching was for helping your patients understand what you have just told them.
What is the “Teach Back” purpose?
The purpose of Teach Back is to help patients understand basic health information. From the Teach Back platform, clinicians/staff take responsibility for adequately teaching patients.
What is the Teach Back Process?
The Teach Back process is simple:
- Provide your patient with the needed information about medications, services, disease processes, etc.
- Have your patient explain to you what you just explained to them
- Ask open-ended questions
How effective is Teach Back?
Research indicates Teach Back is not only effective for helping patients with medical needs, it can also help them self-monitor disease processes.
Teach Back is a sure way of confirming patients understand what the health care professional just told them.
