* You do not want your patients to view the Teach Back task as a test, but rather of how well you explained the concept. You can place the responsibility on yourself by using this suggested language:
* “I want to be sure that I did a good job explaining your blood pressure medications, because this can be confusing. Can you tell me what changes we decided to make and how you will now take the medications?”
* If your patient is not able to repeat back the information accurately, you should try to re-phrase the information, rather than just repeat it. Then, ask the patient to repeat back the instructions again until you feel comfortable that the patient really understands the information."
