Educational 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. Clinician’s guides are designed for printing and keeping on hand in the clinic. These handouts are authored by licensed clinicians and specialists, and backed by current research.

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 Jonathan Bassett at
