    I work in Home Health. No longer a road warrior, have been in charge of providing patient education materials for our road nurses for the past year. I spend a LOT of time online searching for the best available patient education handouts to send out to the home.

    Here are a few links to those which I have found to be not only informative, but easy to read and understand:

    Interactive Health Tutorials: MedlinePlus ... click on the condition or subject of your choice and it will bring up a page which has several options.. click on the "text summary" option and voila! A lovely, pdf format printable handout. Here is a link as an example of what it looks like: Abdominal Aortic Aneurysm: MedlinePlus Interactive Health Tutorial from the Patient Education Institute

    I use these a lot, and there are quite a few to choose from. Some do not have the text summary version, but most do.

    For those of you in HH or geriatrics, this site has some awesome printable materials as well : NIHSeniorHealth Home Page

    This site, too, is a good one (once open click on "publications")
    Lots of good material there.. love their "Age Page" handouts.

    I will copy some more saved links I have at work and try to include them here this week.. I've found some really nice material out there, including Hispanic versions !
