Abstract

Everyday language used by health care professionals in gastroenterology is often unfamiliar to patients, regardless of their level of education. Consequently, the best efforts to explain diagnoses to patients can result in confusion and anxiety instead of understanding. A patient education program was designed in an attempt to correct this problem. This article describes how the patient education program was developed and implemented.
