Patient Education Resources and Tools
ACP's patient education resources are developed to help patients and their families understand health conditions and facilitate communication between patients and their healthcare team. These resources are organized by condition and are available in a variety of formats including self-management guides, videos, and one- and two-page topic summaries.
The Wellness Network Patient Education and Video Library
ACP and The Wellness Network are partnering to deliver new patient education programming that will be available via The Wellness Network’s Patient Channel, an in-hospital TV network and online portal.
ACP members will have access to the Patient Channel library of over 107 disease and medication management, wellness and patient safety videos that can be viewed by patients during an office visit or at home. Programming topics include heart failure, diabetes, hypertension, COPD, joint replacement, hospital safety, and more.
You can access Patient Channel programs anytime online at www.thepatientchannelnow.com. Use this password: 24510
