Krames On-Demand moves to increase cancer education
Krames On Demand, Staywell's print-on-demand resource for health care information, has released some of its signature Healthsheets to be made available for patient use in healthcare facilities nationwide. The Healthsheets meet JCAHO (Joint Commission on Accreditation of Healthcare Organizations) standards and are written with ease-of-use in mind to facilitate patient understanding, Krames said.
The oncology materials are designed to educate patients in all stages of care by providing answers to common questions through illustrations and current practice guidelines. The release comes as a result of urging by the Center for Disease Control which has emphasized the importance of patient education's role in prevention, Krames said.
