This site was built by the Alberta Government and Alberta Health Services to give Albertans one place to go for health information they can trust. Healthcare experts across the province make sure the information is correct, up to date, and written for people who live in Alberta.
Family or Informal Caregivers are family members, loved ones, friends or neighbours who provide support or care for a dying family member, loved one, or friend. Caregiving can be difficult, but resources from Canadian Hospice Palliative Care Association may help.
The Living Lessons campaign is a national initiative providing resources for patients, caregivers and healthcare professionals involved with end-of-life care in Canada.
In addition to MyHealth.Alberta.ca, Lippincott Advisor, DynaMed Plus and Lexicomp are all excellent sources for patient education handouts, which you may wish to consider using to support your patient education needs where appropriate. In DynaMed Plus, use the search box to find a relevant topic, and use the left side navigation to select the "Patient Information" heading. In Lippincott Advisor, see the "Patient Teaching Handouts" section and in Lexicomp you'll find a "Patient Education" tab in the top menu.
