Patient Education

Need help creating or updating patient education materials?

Lives depend on the ability to communicate important information in a way the patient understands.  Patients cannot follow instructions they don’t understand.    

Health literacy is described as the degree to which an individual has the capacity to obtain, communicate, process, and understand basic health information and services to make appropriate health decisions.  (https://www.cdc.gov/healthliteracy/learn/index.html)

Agency for Healthcare Quality & Research created a Health Literacy Tool Shed, a database of health literacy measures including validated assessment tools.  Assessment tools are at http://healthliteracy.bu.edu.
