In the February 2008 issue of Patient Education Management we identified areas of patient education in which surveyors from The Joint Commission based in Oakbrook Terrace, IL, most frequently find need for improvement. One area is teaching from a learning needs assessment. In other words, a learning needs assessment has not been completed in order to create an individualized plan for education. To help address this issue, we discuss the tools medical institutions have set in place to make sure staff members are compliant. In addition, we discuss the barriers to compliance and how to overcome them.
