What is a medical ID? Who needs one? What information should you include, if you get one? Learn this and more in the newest Lifeology Instructional course “What is a Medical ID?”
We’ve enjoyed creating Lifeology Instructional courses and are excited to bring you the next course: “What is a Medical ID?” This course was written by Luisa Torres, PhD.
Did you know that first responders are trained to look for medical IDs? When you are not in a state to speak for yourself and your medical needs, a medical ID can do the speaking for you. There are several conditions in which a medical ID is recommended. You should also have a medical ID if you are allergic to certain medications.
In the course, learn about the history of medical IDs, who should get one, what to include on the medical ID and more. Check out the course now!

The Lifeology Instructional Method was born as an alternative to the “gold standard” Lifeology Story-Driven Method.
The Instructional Method is a flexible creation process that can still incorporate collaboration when needed and features custom illustrations, stock photography or a mix. The courses created using this method also don’t involve the same research and attention to audience-specific questions, concerns, barriers and lived experiences that Lifeology Story-Driven courses do. But for certain topics, the Instructional Method is the more efficient method for Lifeology course creation that doesn’t sacrifice content value.
So far, we have launched the following Lifeology Instructional courses:
