Learner Outcomes

This course was developed to help you identify the learning styles of patients and adjust their delivery of information based on this knowledge. This course was developed through a partnership between Cancer Care Ontario and de Souza Institute and built on the award winning program “Maximizing Patient Education and Skills Workshop”. Patient centered care is defined as an approach that consciously adopts the patient’s perspective about what matters. This course offers information regarding adult learning, followed by information regarding learning and communication styles.
