Reply To: Education about upcoming phases of treatment
Generally, we do not use the roadmaps as they can be too confusing. The care manager for that patient usually makes a calendar to go over what the next phase entails, and we have it translated to the family’s language if non-English speaking.

Our LEP Patient Family Advocate would like to know more about how other institutions teach patients about their next phases of treatment….
How do you go about teaching roadmaps to the families you work with? Do you use the roadmap itself to explain upcoming phases of treatment? Do you modify your approach depending on the family (ie. limited English proficiency, lower educational attainment/literacy level?)
