Rehabilitation Reference Center - Browsing Patient Education

The Patient Education tab in Rehabilitation Reference Center (RRC) provides a specific location to browse for evidence-based patient handouts. RRC contains more than 2,600 patient handouts presented in a standardized, easy-to-read format. Most patient education documents are available in Spanish and many contain detailed medical illustrations.

All patient handouts display the date the content was last updated and includes the following standard sections: 

Definition Causes Risk Factors Symptoms
Diagnosis Treatment Prevention  

Each section is quickly accessible via an embedded HTML table of contents. If available, a Related Information box displaying links to other source types on the topic is also displayed.
