Expanded Patient Education Libraries


We’re thrilled to announce the expansion of our HealthClips Online Video and Resource Library. Below is a list of patient education programs and resources that have recently been added, along with a sneak peek at programming being released this March!

  • Newly expanded Cardiac Rehabilitation Programs
    • Cardiac Rehabilitation is one of the most underutilized, reimbursable services in hospitals. Our suite of education focused on cardiac rehabilitation, available in our Cardiology Library, encourages patients to learn about the benefits of cardiac rehabilitation and take advantage of this resource. In addition, this education can be used throughout the rehabilitation experience to reinforce key learning objectives. Consider including these videos and resources to use in your patients’ 12-week rehabilitation program.
  • New GI screening and Adult Immunization Programs
    • With the addition of upper GI endoscopy, colonoscopy, and screening for colorectal cancer in our Gastroenterology Library, and two new series on common medical tests and adult immunizations in our Quality of Care Library, we can help you better meet your screening and immunization initiatives.
  • New Anticoagulant Resources in the Cardiology Library
    • Find resources for the new oral anticoagulant agents including Xarelto and Eliquis, and a new demonstration video on how to inject Lovenox. These programs will help support your medication compliance initiatives and help with medication safety.
  • New in the Diabetes Library
    • We’ve updated and expanded our programming in prediabetes, type 2 diabetes, and preventing the long-term complications to help in your inpatient education as well as your community initiatives. This education provides a solid base for understanding prediabetes and type 2 diabetes, as well as an understanding of how diabetes can affect long term health. Emphasis is placed on the importance of self-care to prevent or delay the onset or progression of diabetes into dangerous co-morbidities.

The Wellness Network, National Perinatal Association, Patient+Family Care and Preemie Parent Alliance Collaborate to Improve NICU Outcomes


PEWAUKEE, WI – November 17, 2017  – The Wellness Network (TWN), a national leader in actionable patient education and My NICU Network, a collaborative comprised of three respected organizations involved in professional and parent education and support of high-risk newborns and their families, have partnered to offer NICU Staff Education and Family Support.

NICU Staff Education and Family Support was developed to deliver timely hospital staff education and family support resources to hospital NICU departments across the US.  “NICU professionals do an incredible job of caring for fragile, medically complicated newborns,” said Sara Mosher RN, BSN, MHA, My NICU Network co-creator and Founder of Patient+Family Care. “However, studies have shown that family-centered care and engaged parents are as critical as sophisticated medical technologies to the continued improvement and eventual home discharge of NICU babies.”

My NICU Network created a NICU staff education course called Caring for NICU Babies and their Families: Providing Psychosocial Support in the NICU based on the National Perinatal Association’s “Interdisciplinary Recommendations for the Psychosocial Support of NICU Parents,” published in the Journal of Perinatology. My NICU Network, a collaboration between National Perinatal Association (NPA), Patient+Family Care (PFC) and Preemie Parent Alliance (PPA), developed this 7-module online continuing education series to fill known gaps in neonatal unit staff education. The program modules, which can be taken individually or as the full course, offer CEU credit accredited by PAC/LAC. Modules provide much-needed staff training and education to improve psychosocial support of families, including family-centered developmental care. Lessons focus on communication skills, emotional and peer-to-peer support, palliative and bereavement care, discharge planning and follow-up, and staff support.
