katsanchezRN 29 Posts May 3, 2014 I had a pt whose daughter was a pharmacist and I didnt know it when I began teaching on comfort meds. (Hospice pt). A few days later we were talking and she thanked me for my education I taught her things she didnt know about the medications. The teaching was inappropriately worded, but teaching on medications is our job and no matter our pts or their families professions. We still must teach. I have had numerous pts and family memebers who were/are medical professionals and they are always receptive and grateful for education provided.
