Teach back training toolkit (March 2014)

14 Mar 2014 | Partners in Care

This toolkit, produced by Iowa Health, the Picker Institute, Des Moines University and Health Literacy Iowa, is to help all health care providers learn to use teach-back—every time it is indicated—to support patients and families throughout the care continuum, especially during transitions between health care settings.

The toolkit combines health literacy principles of plain language and using teach-back to confirm understanding, with behavior change principles of coaching to new habits and adapting systems to promote consistent use of key practices.
