Please Note: This interactive module does not offer certificates of completion or any kind of report. Please check with your organization for more information.


The Interactive Teach-back Learning Module has two parts:

  • It describes teach-back and demonstrates its effectiveness as a health literacy intervention to improve patient-provider communication.
  • Video and interactive self-assessment questions enhance, confirm, and reinforce your ability to use teach-back and integrate it into your clinical practice.

    The Module takes about 45 minutes, and enables you to identify and practice key aspects of teach-back. You will follow a patient’s experience from hospital discharge through the home health and primary care follow-up settings: 

    • Introduction, description, and demonstration of ideal use of teach-back.
    • Teach-back during hospital discharge.
    • Teach-back during a home health visit.
    • Teach-back at primary care physician follow-up.
    • Tying it all together to Always Use Teach-back!
