Understanding how you learn key to cancer care
If you've never thought about your learning style, here are a few key points to help you discover your preferences.
Visual — prefer to learn with images, maps, diagrams and graphs to understand new information
Auditory — learn best by listening and discussing the new information.
Read and write — prefer to learn through reading written materials and note taking.
Kinesthetic — learn by using hands-on, tactile (touch) information, such as models
Most people learn best through a combination of styles. However, you may have a strong preference for one over another. For example, I love to read, so my preference is to read about a new topic, study it and explore examples of what others have experienced. you also, find it helpful to take notes and keep a journal. This tells me that I learn best with a combination of a read/write style and kinesthetic styles.It's important for you to reflect on what works best so that you can communicate it to your healthcare team. Don't be afraid to speak up and tell them.We’d love to hear your thoughts on the topic of learning styles. What works best for you and why?
