For this assignment, assume your supervisor has asked you to develop a patient education tool for new “medication starts” in your current area of practice. You will complete a literature search in order to discover current information (less than 5 years old) on the medication. This information will then be utilized to prepare a single-page, evidence-based teaching tool that highlights patient safety. In the second part of the assignment, you will describe the process of creating the tool, based on your findings, in a short, scholarly report. Create a patient education sheet Research the medication you have chosen and determine what informatio​‌‌‌‌‍‌‍‌‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‌‍‍‌​n needs to be included on a patient education sheet. As you are aware, different drugs have different safety factors that have to be discussed to increase compliance and patient safety. What information does the patient or caretaker of a patient need to know? Choose the categories that you feel are the most important to highlight for your patients (remember that you are creating a single-page education sheet.) Limit yourself to 3–5 categories to improve patient understanding. Examples of categories could include, but are not limited to, common indications, side effects, questions to ask your doctor, contraindications, and drug storage and disposal. Use pictures that help reinforce education. Attach the patient education sheet as an appendix to your paper or attach it as a separate docume​‌‌‌‌‍‌‍‌‍‌‌‌‍‌‍‌‍‍‌​nt.
