MyHealth.Alberta.ca, DynaMed, and Nursing Reference Center (NRC) are all excellent sources for patient education handouts.

The materials found in each may be quite similar, and all are developed using the best available evidence on a given topic. MyHealth.Alberta.ca patient handouts are developed by HealthWise, a non-profit organization that writes health information for consumers. NRC patient handouts are developed by EBSCO Publishing under the guidance of its Medical Review Board. DynaMed links to patient information resources developed by trustworthy external organizations, such as the Mayo Clinic or the relevant professional college.

MyHealth.Alberta.ca handouts automatically include contact information for HEALTHLink Alberta.  NRC handouts can be customized with the patient and provider names, contact information, and other notes.

We recommend that clinicians draw on all of these resources and use their clinical judgment and expertise to determine which source offers the most appropriate information for the patient.
