This course focuses primarily on patient education and telehealth. Telehealth relies on patient participation; partnering with patients to facilitate telehealth education is essential to guarantee the implementation of a successful program (American Medical Association, 2020). This patient-centered approach allows the patient to feel comfortable and be informed, engaged, and empowered. Specifically, using telehealth for patient education is helpful in promoting health and well-being. Further, continued education is an important component in the treatment of acute and chronic diseases.
