Patient Education Resources
The Patient Education Department provides access to easy-to-understand health information to help patients to actively participate in their care, and to achieve a level of understanding and sense of control over their cancer. The patient education resources provided to patients:
- Comply with health literacy, readability and Joint Commission standards
- Reflect evidenced-based practice
- Meet the communication and cultural needs of patients
- Adhere to the organizational policies for patient education resources
The Patient Education Website has an extensive inventory of resources, with many handouts available in multiple languages. In addition to individual handouts, we develop educational videos and books specific to a diagnosis, treatment or procedure. Our resource centers offer comfortable, quiet places where James patients and their families/caregivers can find information and resources about living with cancer.
