AHS-reviewed and Alberta-optimized patient teaching handouts are available within Connect Care and at MyHealth.Alberta.ca/handouts. Within Connect Care, educational handouts are about care instructions related to various medical conditions, treatments, medications, before and after care as well as brief general info. These can be favorited by HCPs for future quick access, personalized with some specific instructions to a patient and then added to the After Visit Summary.
