Patient Family Education

Heller Learning for Living Center

At the time of diagnosis and throughout treatment the medical team educates patients, caregivers, and their family members about the patient’s diagnosis, treatment plan, and anything related to their medical care.

The Patient Educator is a professional that will educate and advocate for the patient’s needs, facilitate communication between the patient, caregivers, and healthcare providers, and will help guide the family through the healthcare system by overcoming obstacles that are in the way of the patient receiving the care and treatment they require.
