The Alliance Advancement Series
Designing and Applying Best Practices for Patient Education in Underserved Communities

Presented on: Thursday, August 24, 2023

Many patients are from underrepresented, marginalized, low-income communities where barriers such as socioeconomic status and culture impede access to quality healthcare. To help patients and families navigate their healthcare needs and make informed decisions about their care, especially in cases of donation and transplantation, it’s critical for healthcare providers to use patient education materials that are diverse, equitable, and inclusive. Well-designed DEI patient education invites all populations to the table and aids in breaking down these barriers and empowers Hospitals, OPOs, and Transplant Centers to help their patients and families make informed decisions about their loved one’s care. This webinar is intended to help healthcare professionals create well-designed patient education and information materials that will increase patient trust and community connections, advocate for greater affordability, and provide healthcare options.

  • Recognize the value of designing patient education that address the needs of patients, especially those in underserved communities.
  • Identify ways to apply best practices for the underserved health literacy and education requirements.
  • Describe how result-oriented patient education initiatives in transplantation have applied these methods.
  • Utilize what you learned today, to create, develop and enhance your current patient education.
