Patient Education: Handouts, Booklets, & Infographics

 

 

To stay on top of the medical evidence, we read a lot of articles. As we read, we often come across great patient handouts from all over the web. Collected here are some of our favourites.

We're always looking for more resources to add to this list. Email us anytime at info@rxfiles.ca with your suggestions.
