Wellbe Announces Webinar on a Multi-Modal Approach to Orthopedic Patient Education

The webinar will be hosted on OrthoServiceLine.com, a free resource to the orthopedic community.

Madison, WI (I-Newswire) December 31, 2013 - Wellbe, Inc., today announced a complimentary webinar with Jack Davis, Manager of Patient Education Programs at Hospital for Special Surgery, titled "Patient & Family Education: A Multi-modal approach to improve the experience."

This session will describe educational concepts to enhance the orthopaedic patient experience. The elective nature of orthopedic surgery creates an opportunity to intervene with patients and family early and often throughout the episode of care. Multimodal teaching strategies (individual, group learning, written materials and web based tools) delivered prior to surgery and reinforced multiple times across care transitions can reduce anxiety, increase satisfaction, improve ability to manage pain and help patients feel more prepared for surgery.

Improving the patient experience is increasingly important as quality and satisfaction metrics are becoming linked to reimbursement. Transitional care interventions, such as discharge planning, follow up calls with emphasis on participation in self care have shown to improve continuity of care, reduce readmissions and prevent poor health outcomes.
