Patient Education

The need to provide education to patients and family members is universal among healthcare providers and to the healthcare institution as a whole. Today’s increasing need for awareness of our clients and the general public about health lifestyles and common medical disorders has been the top priority of Dr. Khalid Idriss Hospital.

Here at Dr. Khalid Idriss Hospital, we believe that effective health education lays a solid foundation for individuals and community well-being. Teaching is in the very heart of our medical staff which serves as our integral tool in assisting our clients and their families in developing effective health behavior and in altering lifestyle patterns that predispose them to health risks.

With this, we assess our client’s needs for health education compassionately during clinic visits and on admissions with the active participation of the patients’ families and relatives and reassess their knowledge through questions and return demonstration to ensure effective learning and safe application.

To make patient aware of their disease and participate in its management, Dr. Khalid Idriss Hospital arranges lectures and symposium on common health diseases such as breast cancer, diabetes, osteoporosis, etc. as well as brochures and pamphlets in all areas of patient care. Health related videos are regularly played on television for patient education.
