Patient education methodologies and Role of DNP nurse making a difference in the quality and delivery of patient education in Clinical Practice
***ASSIGNMENT:  (Can reference our textbook, but need at least 3 references from the articles uploaded).

  1. Discuss exact methodologies of patient education used in your clinical practice.
  2. How do you envision your role with a DNP degree making a difference in the quality and delivery of patient education in your clinical practice setting. ***PLEASE ADDRESS ALL THE QUESTIONS FOR THE ASSIGNMENT.



  1. Discuss how crucial/important is patient education. “Clinicians who have been practicing for some time recognize that informed patients have better outcomes and pay more attention to their overall health and changes in their health than those who are poorly informed” (Mastrian & McGonogle, 2017). Read the articles to generate more knowledge on the importance of patient education.
  2. Talk about health literacy, see textbook I uploaded and highlighted some information about this.
  3. Discuss the different methodologist of patient education used in clinical practice: “Providing one-on-one (Counseling, teach-back method) and classroom instruction are traditional and valuable forms of education. One-on-one education is interactive and can be adjusted at any time during the process based on the needs of the individual patient or family; it can also be supplemented by written material, videos, and web-based learning applications” “Classroom education can be beneficial because patients and families with similar needs or problems can network, thereby enhancing the individual experience” (Mastrian & McGonigle, 2017). B. “Paper-based education that is created, printed, and distributed by individual institutions or providers can be very effective because materials can be distributed at any time and reviewed when the patient feels like learning” (Mastrian & McGonigle, 2017) the paper-based flyer (written information), C. Educational videos, D. health information kiosks (specially at the hospital), E. One of the most popular sources of patient education information is the Internet.
  4. Health care providers should educate patient on how to identify credible websites. helping consumers find credible information on the Internet. Such as university sites (.edu), government sites (.gov), and HCO sites (.org). Other excellent sources of reliable information are the National Institutes of Health (, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (, Medline Plus (, NIHSeniorHealth (, and the National Health Information Center

“Health care professionals need to take many things into account when teaching patients. They need to assess patients’ willingness to learn, their reading ability, the means by which they learn best, and their existing knowledge about the subject. Professionals also need to take cultural differences and language differences into account when teaching their patients. If the professional chooses to use an electronic method to educate the patient, digital natives (patients who have grown up with technology) need to be taught differently than digital immigrants (those who have been forced to learn technology). Digital natives are typically born after 1982 and may also be referred to as “Generation Y.” This generation prefers to learn using technology. The younger group learns quite well if information is presented in a format to which they are accustomed, such as an interactive video game to introduce them to a topic. This group is also comfortable using information that they can access via their handheld devices, such as smartphones and tablets, as well as wearable devices, such as smartwatches. Those born before 1982 may have learning styles that range from preferring to learn in a classroom setting to reading a book about the topic to learning using a hands-on, interactive approach” (Mastrian & McGonigle,2017) ALL OF THIS IS STRAIGHT FROM THE BOOK,  NEED TO BE SUMMARIZED AND PARAPHRASED.

  1. Discuss education via electronic communication “The rapid growth of electronic communication through increased use of computers and access to the Internet, particularly for medical purposes, empowers the clinician as well as the consumer of health care information. The integration of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and the growing trend of consumer empowerment have reshaped the delivery of health care”(Mastrian & McGonigle,2017)

“Many companies that provide clinical information systems or electronic health records also include patient education materials linked to the clinical system via an intranet. Thus, standardized instructions that are specific to a procedure or disease process can be printed from this computer-based application. Discharge instructions that are interdisciplinary and patient specific can often be modified via drop-down lists or selectable items that can be deleted or changed by the health care professionals caring for the patient. This ability to modify before printing provides more consistent and individualized instruction” (Mastrian & McGonigle, 2017).

  1. Lastly discuss how the role of DNP nurse (Doctorate of Nursing Practice) (Nurse Practitioner), will make a difference in the quality and delivery of patient education in clinical practice (See the articles and generate information on this matter). Delivering quality of care education, improving patient safety, decreasing costs, improving continuity of care….

“Clearly, the health care professional is very important in engaging the patient to partner with them in the management of their health”


– Type of setting I work: I work in primary care as a Family Nurse Practitioner (Family Practice), treating the whole family (children and adults). I treat acute and chronic health conditions (Diabetes, HTN, etc…).

– PLEASE USE MY REFERENCES, I’m attaching all the articles. I’M also attaching the Chapter we are currently covering (Mastrian & McGonigle 2017). Please add DOI numbers on the references (It’s required in APA). References MUST be scholarly journal articles (Not from conferences, other text books online, goggle, .com).

Thank you and let me know if you have any questions
