Every year, the Patient Education Team identifies patient pamphlets that have not been reviewed or updated within 5 years of the last review date.
To ensure continued availability, you must contact the Patient Education Team before January 31st, 2023 to initiate the review of any pamphlets published in 2017 or before.
Routine archiving of out-of-date pamphlets is done in accordance with policy AD-LIB-001 Patient Education Materials: Development and Maintenance (Procedure 4.3), which helps ensure Nova Scotia Health patients and families receive up-to-date patient education materials. Patient pamphlets must be reviewed by the teams that created them, and/or the teams that use them, to confirm whether the pamphlets need to be updated or removed from circulation.
The full list of items that must be reviewed and updated before January 31st, 2023 can be found here.
