Abstract:
Health education through patient and family member teaching materials available on
carefully constructed websites has been shown to improve home health and evidence
based chronic illness care. Family members and the patients need to learn about
medications, physical care, nutrition, medical treatments, and emotional reactions to
disease. Providing patient and family education on various Internet websites aligns with
the Institute of Medicine (IOM) priority to coordinate treatments for those with multiple
chronic illnesses (IOM, 2009).
This chapter will describe empirically verified websites used to provide patient
education and deliver nursing care from a distance. Elements of these websites and
numerous strategies such as interactive learning that are discussed include: (1) patient and
family caregiver evaluations and learning outcomes of their internet learning experiences;
(2) advantages of having video clips and detailed illustrations to guide home illness care
that families can manage; and (3) examples of traditional educational assumptions and
learning principles in this information system-based instruction. Internet interactive
capabilities are used to develop patients abilities to critique the sources of online
information and tailor it to their home care needs. Learning is achieved by “doing,” or
engaging patients in the use of information relevant to their everyday home care
treatments.
