Yet, like many health providers you probably don't have the time or expertise to respond to every psychosocial need coming to your attention. Compounding the problem, when you do discuss strategies to cope with a particular psychosocial problem the patient may forget crucial information given to them during the medical encounter.
In response to these issues, we have developed psychosocial patient educational handouts specifically designed for you to give to older patients. Each handout is:
- Informative and practical
- Easy to read
- Available in Spanish
- Easy to download
- Approved by New York-Presbyterian Hospital for patients and families
