Resources and Educational Materials

Patient/Family Education Materials by Category

This section contains broad-ranging information Children's Hospitals & Clinics has developed about pediatric medicine. Here you will find plain talk about medical conditions or procedures, first aid, and the like. Many topics have illustrations and detailed instructions about how to provide care at home, and when to call for medical advice. Some topics offer links to Hmong, Somali, and Spanish versions.

The information in this section duplicates information given to the parents of Children's patients during their child's care in one of the hospitals or clinics.

This section has medical information, not medical advice. If you or your child has a health problem, contact your clinic. Use these materials only under the guidance of your child's health care provider.
