The authors of Chronic Pain: Atlas of Investigation and Management have prepared a set of patient management tools for use by physicians as an aid to help keep their patients better informed.
Patients often fail to capture or recall salient features from healthcare encounters, overwhelmed by too much information, fears, and other stresses. Using written handouts is an important and effective supplement for patient education - they provide patients with concise information to reinforce messages about their health condition and treatment.
