Patient Handouts

Patient & Caregiver Handouts

As a free resource to our readers, ADVANCE offers convenient downloadable handouts on a range of health topics encountered by clinicians. These one-page, easy-to-reference guides are designed to be printed out and distributed to patients. Patient handouts are designed for printing and keeping on hand in the clinic.

The two newest handouts are open access. To view and print the archived handouts, viewable by category below, you may be asked to sign in or to create an account. For comments on these handouts or to suggest a handout topic, e-mail Pam Tarapchak at

Thank you for this series. I have found in my experience one page handouts are most effective in they keep it simple and patients are most likely to actually read & complete them. Patient education is tantamount in helping patient's manage their own disease and promote independence. I have also found the simpler the better!
