You Give Chronic Disease Education To Your Home Care Staff, But Things Don’t To Improve. Is The Training The Problem? Make Sure Your Training Hits It Out Of The Park Every Time!

hit it out of the parkIt is not new information that chronic disease education is important. Chronic Disease Management is so expensive for the healthcare system and for providers of care as well. Sometimes, you may provide chronic disease education and not get the outcomes you want. It may be the approach of the program you use. Let’s look at why an integrated program is so important. 

You Are A Team: 

The clinicians in the field are members of one team. It often doesn’t present this way. Many times, the aides do their thing as do the therapists and nurses. When each discipline completes “their part”, the patient is discharged. One month later, you receive another referral for the patient who exacerbated the same disease you worked to stabilize. The revolving door of chronic disease begins with a chronic disease program that looks at your care plan differently. 

Chronic Disease Education: 

Teaching on Chronic Disease is not just about teaching each discipline about signs and symptoms. Chronic Disease Education needs to be facility-based and not just on discipline. It needs to pull together a collective management program addressing care planning as well as employee intervention. Many programs are just specifically to teach the aide or nurse what the signs and symptoms of the diseases are and that is it. If you teach something that only deals with memorization, then how do you expect for clinical staff to critically work with facility processes and patients? The two items need to go hand-in-hand.
