INFORMED AND INVOLVED YOUNG PEOPLE BECOME “I-PATIENTS”
Becoming an Informed and Involved I-Patient is a program that helps
children as young as twelve years old understand their roles as informed
and involved patients.
As soon as a child has plans for surgery or is injured playing sports, he or she is a candidate for pain medication dependency. In this program children learn early what it means to take medication as prescribed through a discussion they can have with the adults and clinicians in their lives.
We cover other topics such as:
Young people will learn about health literacy and communication skills, all in a fun and interactive environment.
Because the program is interactive, it’s best held in the classroom with smaller groups.
