Accessing patient education materials on Michigan Medicine’s ‘Care Guides from your Clinician’ website

November 29, 2022  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

As you may be aware, earlier this year the Patient Education Clearinghouse and Care Guides websites were removed due to a security incident. These sites are no longer available in their previous forms.

However, a new website — Care Guides from your Clinician — is available where you can access Michigan Medicine patient education materials, including those materials that were previously housed in the Patient Education Clearinghouse and the Care Guides site. 

Materials on this site are intended for use by clinicians, staff members, patients, their families and the general public.

The new Care Guides site is still a work in progress, as the Michigan Medicine Patient Education and Health Literacy (PEHL) team continues to fine-tune the organizational structure of the site, including rebuilding department pages and refining the site’s search capabilities, in partnership with the Department of Communication.

If you are unable to find your department’s specific patient education document on the Care Guides website or you need to update or remove your department’s materials on the site, please send an email to the PEHL team at umhs-patient-education@med.umich.edu. (Note: this email is not for requesting a search. Please use “Search for a Care Guide” on the homepage of the website for this purpose or request an expert search using the PEHL request form here: https://www.med.umich.edu/i/pteducation/about/ServiceRequests.html.)

The PEHL team is also currently exploring new platforms and options for a future iteration of Michigan Medicine’s patient education resources website/library. In the future, if you’d like to be surveyed on this topic or be part of a focus group, please send an email to umhs-patient-education@med.umich.edu indicating your interest.
