User Reviews

“We use the P&H Teaching book as our clinician-to-patient information bible. The product makes a tremendous difference in our day to day practice with our homecare patients. It enables us to be a more informed provider and therefore have better equipped patients to live healthier lives. We continuously strive as a center for excellence in delivering exceptional care. Using the TB helps us to achieve that standard.”

“The Pritchett & Hull Teaching Book is an excellent patient education tool. We have integrated each educational topic/procedure into the patient education drawer for the nurses to access educational handouts for their patients. As clinical educators, we value that the material is written in an easy to read format with illustrations which are appropriate for the elderly and for people with fluency or literacy issues. “

“I use the Teaching Book in my work as a Clinical Educator. We have printed thousands of copies for the nurses to use with their patients. The feedback has been very positive. The education level of the material is appropriate for most of our patients and the information is very comprehensive. Since it is updated annually the material always stays current. I would recommend this product to any agency that give written educational material to their patients.”
