HELP!! patient teaching

  1. I have to do patient teaching for my fundamentals class and I have decided to do it on IBS(figured it would be easy since i have it) anyways this is the first we have done so if someone could help me get started that would be great. I know where to find the info I just dont know how to formulate it. We have to get in front of the class and either teach them or a fellow student. THANKS

Most large hospitals that have websites also have health libraries with consumer information on them that have this same kind of set: provide patient teaching about major illnesses. All you have to do is link into them and look at how they present the information. Here's a few for you to look at:
    You also might want to check out the health education tools on this NIH webpage to see if there is something there you can use in your presentation:
