The evidence-based, contextually relevant, disease-specific health education materials aim to provide strategies for improvement in health literacy, disease management comprehension, and medication adherence. The health education materials address difficulties many adults experience in understanding health information. The health education system must remain a contextually relevant, patient-specific reference for standardizing disease-specific education according to the patient's mental capability (Fereidouni et al., 2019). Nurse-driven education material system addresses equity, diversity, and inclusion, tailored for all literacy degrees.
Clinical decision-making is a complicated process influenced by a highly variable process that exponentially increases error rates, selection, or exclusion, unintended or not, by presenting more than one perspective (Czyż, 2021). Reducing variability by developing a clinical decision support system diminishes the risks of poor decision-making due to errors by omitting contextual reference material. The created clinical decision support system categorizes patient education resources based on the most common conditions experienced in the clinical location, reducing variability. A clinical decision support system also minimizes selection errors or errors of omission while simultaneously providing the content of the education materials due to increased uniformity of the reference documents.
