Patient Education


At St. Joseph’s Healthcare Hamilton (SJHH) we strive to provide our patients and their caregivers with the vital information they need to assist in the treatment and management of their care. In this section you will find information and instructional guides prepared by members of our healthcare team and our community partners in care. This series of patient education files includes topics ranging from common medical conditions to specific types of surgery performed at SJHH.

Please note that the information in this section is arranged in alphabetical order. To access individual files, please click on the first letter of the topic that you want to read about - for example, for information about Diabetes, click on the letter D.

Since each patient is unique and treatments are individual, this information should never take the place of talking to your health care provider.
