Patient Safety Tool: Clinical Teach-Back Cards

The TMF Health Quality Institute, the Medicare Quality Improvement Organization for Texas, offers free clinical teach-back cards to help healthcare providers explain medical information to patients.

The clinical teach-back cards, developed in 2011, explain the concept of teach-back, which is to ask patients open-ended questions to ensure they understood instructions. The cards also include information on several drugs, such as angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitors and angiotensin II receptor blockers, as well as quick nurse reference guides on national quality indicators for conditions such as heart failure and acute myocardial infarction.
