EduCare introduces the new COPE LibraryTM: Breast Health Edition, to aid the medical community in providing each patient with information that answers their questions about procedures, treatments and side effects. The library consists of 427 symptom-specific breast health education topics in 22 categories. It is available through an annual subscription.
The COPE LibraryTM: Breast Health Edition allows healthcare professionals to provide appropriate education for each patient’s specific needs, increasing patient’s understanding and compliance. Each topic is numbered for easy documentation and is customized with the facilities logo and contact information. The printable topics save time for doctors and nurses and empower patients through understanding, while ensuring that the patient information given is consistent throughout the facility.
