Patient Education Manuals

    The NAON Patient Education manuals present information that can be shared with individual or groups of patients. Content is meant to be thorough yet generic enough to represent clinical practice from everywhere. Each manual is downloadable in its entirety or by individual segment. There is space throughout the documents to individualize them according to specific patient needs. Along with much educational information, highlights include frequently asked questions, packing checklist, exercise and precaution photos and descriptions, activity goals and worksheet appendices. As you use the manuals to educate your patients, please make note of suggested revisions and forward them at any time to All suggestions will be considered at the time of product revision.
