The following resources are available on the web and can be printed off to give to your patients and their families. You may want to think about what resources could help now. Over time as needs change you may want to provide other printed materials to support the family.
If you cannot find the information you would like to give them, pages in the Patients and Families section of CareSearch contain links to many other resources. All pages in the Patients and Families section are print ready. By clicking on the printer icon, the webpage will be formatted for printing.
