Any ideas for teaching?

  1. Hello! I'm trying to figure out what would be good to teach a 16 y/o with an admitting diagnosis of right knee hematoma. He was diagnosed with Hemophilia A in 1997. He has been on bedrest to help with the pain in his joints and until the swelling goes down in his knee. PT is coming to do crutch training I believe. He is also currently receiving Factor 8 Recombinant injections BID and just had a PICC line placed in his right arm, which he will administer injections into once daily when he gets home. I need help with some ideas on what to teach him! I would GREATLY appreciate any help! Thank you and have a wonderful day!

    PICC line care, signs/symptoms of infection, etc.

    Definitely, PICC line care. Perhaps diagrams etc too, so he knows where the catheter tip is etc, so he gets some idea how important infection control is.
