From Martha Hellems:

There is an opportunity to get involved and help with patient education, meaningful use, the notorious AVS, and more! A new Patient Education Subcommittee is being formed. This committee, which will report to the Patient Care Committee, needs more representation from Pediatrics. Desiree Yeago (Northridge Pediatrics) and I are the only Pediatrics voices on this committee and we could use your help. Everyone is welcome, MDs, nursing, anyone with an interest in patient education – so pass on the word in your clinic or division. Contact Cindy Westley ( for more information.

The Committee’s Charge:

  • Support/oversight to local Pt Ed groups (including service centers)
  • Patient Education  Forums (twice a year)
  • Oversight of Scope of Service and Policy
  • Support standard work related to consistent messages and resources (Be Safe)

  • Review of handouts and other resources – Patient Information – Marketing/ Patient Education – Repository.
  • Patient Satisfaction
  • Joint Commission Standards and Audit
  • Meaningful Use measures
