dc.description.abstractWritten patient education materials can help improve self-efficacy and adherence to medical treatment before and after lung transplantation. Non-adherence to treatment regimens especially after transplant often results in acute rejection, graft loss, decreased quality of life, and sometimes death. The ability to develop written patient materials that are effective at illuminating such a complex and detailed process is challenging and should be complimented with oral counseling. Development of materials should focus on an assessment of the patient population and their specific learning needs. When writing the information, the author should communicate closely with the interdisciplinary team who will be utilizing the information. The information should then be evaluated utilizing a multitude of tools that each focus on a distinctive segment of the materials to ensure that they the evaluation is comprehensive prior to utilizing the materials with patients. Authors should evaluate the materials before their use in the patient population.en_US
