Health Education plays an important role when formulating programs that will involve both patient and their respctive families. Typically, it requires health care providers to use a systematic approach when generating these educational programs. One requirement would be to assure that the individuals involved in the articulation of these programs are well trained to do so. For Instance, making sure that the following elements are covered:

Focusing on need to know content and omitting unnecessary information.
Explaining to participants what new information or skill they’re learning.
Guide trainers in choosing appropiate learning methods to enhance patient’s learning.
Assist trainers in designing appropriate assessment and evaluation tools that accurately reflect curriculum.
Once Healthcare providers have clearly outlined specific knowledge, information, attitudes, and skills that participants are expected to gain then they can proceed with construction of learning objectives. The learning objectives should be clear, conscise and include the following components: audience, behavior, standard and condition. For better maximization of objectives, healthcare providers should also consider the three different components of learning: cognitive, affective and psychomotor. Usage of all these tools, enables heath providers to develop more holistic and comprehensive objectives which therefore creates effective educational programs.
