Patient Education

Patient Education enables individuals to make informed decisions about their personal health-related behavior. It aims to improve health by encouraging compliance with medical treatment regimens and promoting healthy lifestyles.

Did you know? UVA Health has a Patient Education repository that includes print, video and web-based patient education materials. These available materials have already been created and endorsed by UVA Health’s content experts for your use in helping individuals to make healthier lifestyle choices. Patient Education specialists within the Nursing Professional Governance Organization maintain this database.

If you are in need of patient education materials, please visit Patient Education Repository to see if a document already exists. If you need to create new patient education materials, please review Patient Education Materials Instructions. If you have questions or issues during this process, please reach out to [email protected].
