Patient education and discharge planning starts on admission and you need to provide your patient with education during your shift in preparation for discharge home.

• Explain two (2) important points/topics you will need to include in the patient’s preparation for discharge to aid healing and prevent further illness.

Choose two (2) medications that your patient has been prescribed (one (1) from their new medications list and one (1) from their usual medications list) and discuss the following:

How does the medication work?

Why has your patient been prescribed this medication?
