Benefits of partnering with clinical educators
Patients have access to clinical educators, who provide support, answer questions related to heart health, and help patients adhere to their treatment plans.
A team of clinical educators incorporate test results and the doctor’s treatment plan to provide patients with counseling and strategies to address and reduce the risk for heart disease and stroke.
Clinical educators can instruct patients on how to:
- Eat Healthy: showing the right foods to complement the treatment plan
- Get Moving: choosing the appropriate amount, intensity, and type of exercise
- Manage Stress: guiding through different stress-relief methods
- Adhere to Medications: discussing how medications work, why they are needed, and ways to handle side effects
