Teach Back Champions are our Teach Back Ambassadors. at the annual Teach Back Summit Teach Back champions have the opportunity to practice the Teach Back method with their colleagues. As champions they bring the Teach Back method to their units and help their colleagues implement the Teach Back Method of patient education.
The role of the Teach Back champion is a very important role. Champions really are leaders and the Teach Back ambassador on their unit. The staff is able to learn and grow in their ability to use the Teach Back methodology in as much as they are educated and trained by the champions and the Teach Back team (champions and unit leaders) that each unit develops.
Our patients deserve clear and comprehensive patient education and through the use of the Teach Back method we are able to make sure they understand what we are teaching them. Teach Back champions are champions, to the patients and their colleagues! If you are interested in becoming a Teach Back champion speak to your unit director today.
