When you need additional information, patient education materials matter.

Helping Hand education materials are a valuable resource for patients and families. Written and illustrated by medical, nursing and allied health professionals at Nationwide Children's Hospital. Helping Hand instructions are intended as a supplement to verbal instructions provided by a medical professional. The information is periodically reviewed and revised to reflect our current practice.
