Need Learning Theory to dev. Patient Education tools

BKGamRN BKGamRN (New) New

Working on a grad school project. Am developing patient educational materials for adult learners, specifically instructing cancer patients on treatment options, procedures, side effects, etc..... I need to provide a specific learning theory as a theoretical framework (i.e. constructivist, etc..). I am stuck. Constructivist theories build on existing knowledge and it might work, but I need some validation from educational experts. There are several cognitive theories, so if I go this route I would need to provide a specific one. I don't think social learning theory would work because this teaching is tailored as 1:1 RN-client interactive instructional.

What are the most common learning theories geared toward patient education?
