Toronto, December 5, 2011

Patient and Family Learning Centre
Volunteers are on hand at the Patient and Family Learning Centre to help you find the health information you need.

St. Michael’s Hospital is dedicated to providing you with quality information to help you learn about your health. Visit our updated Learn About Health section, featuring our new online health library. Offered in partnership with Krames Staywell, the online health library includes both print and video resources covering thousands of health topics.

The section also features an internet search tool that delivers results from St. Michael's-approved sources, health tips updated daily by St Michael's doctors, and information on our Patient and Family Learning Centre.

St. Michael’s Patient and Family Learning Centre provides access to a variety of health resources for patients, including brochures, videos, and books for loan. All of the resources in the Learning Centre have been approved by St. Michael’s staff and physicians.

The Patient and Family Learning Centre is conveniently located in the Queen Street lobby, open throughout the week (Monday - Friday, 9 a.m. - 5 p.m.) and is wheelchair accessible. You can also request a package of health information and have it sent to your home.
