What Is Teach-Back?
- A way to make sure you—the healthcare provider—explained information clearly; it is not a test or quiz of patients
- Asking a patient (or family member) to explain—in their own words—what they need to know or do, in a caring way
- A way to check for understanding and, if needed, re-explain and check again
- A research-based health literacy intervention that promotes adherence, quality and patient safety
