At Mayo Clinic, education for patients is central to the treatment of all diseases. When patients understand their condition, and the options available to them, they can work with their team of physicians and other health care providers to design a treatment plan that is optimal for them.
To this end, Mayo Clinic has a Patient Education Center and a Cancer Education Center to assist patients in learning about their conditions. The centers are staffed by experienced education specialists who can help patients find and understand information. All patients and their families are invited.
