Integrated Communications Recommendations and Messaging Strategies
Patient Education Fliers
Distribute fliers to patients as well as referring physicians for their patients. The fliers explain diseases, symptoms, risk factors, and prevention. The fliers instruct the public to see a vascular surgeon if they exhibit evidence of a disease. Space exists on the fliers to enter practice contact information.
Vascular Health Activity Book for Children
A free-of-charge, online activity book of games and coloring pages features Blood Buddies to teach children about good vascular health. This resource can promote a vascular medical practice to the community.
These materials will aid in presentations made to the public including to patients of referring physicians. Also offer to make presentations at community centers, senior centers, houses of worship, etc. Edit the PowerPoint presentation (below) accordingly. Maintain an easy-to-understand message. Provide the Patient Education Fliers (above) to audience members.
