Breve descripción de Practical Patient Literacy: The Medagogy Model

Use the Medagogy Model to enhance patient communication and the efficiency of your practice

In this unique guide, Dr. Melissa Stewart explains her patient-centered Medagogy conceptual framework, which tracks the flow of information throughout the patient education process, from information to delivery to action. Not only does the Medagogy model help patients understand their illness and become their own best healthcare advocate, it is the cornerstone of effective multidisciplinary patient education.

Dr. Stewart s patient literacy work and her Understanding Personal Perception (UPP) tool were incorporated into the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services   (CMS) 9th scope of work Care Transitions pilot. The Quality Initiative Organization, which used Dr. Stewart s work in this program, was acknowledged by the CMS with a national award for their outstanding contribution to the field of healthcare.
