Teach Back Toolkit


The Always Use Teach-Back! training toolkit helps all health care providers learn to use teach-back, every time it is indicated, to support patients and families throughout the care continuum, especially during transitions between health care settings. The toolkit combines health literacy principles of plain language and using teach-back to ensure understanding. Behavior change principles, coaching new habits, and adapting systems to promote consistent use of key practices are also included.
