DESCRIPTION 


This webcast will raise awareness with the learner about the challenges that patients have understanding healthcare information. Health literacy affects some patients more than others. To help healthcare workers appreciate this situation, risk factors that can potentially limit a patient's understanding and behaviors associated with limited health literacy will be addressed. Oral and written communication strategies to address this problem will be discussed along with three health literacy tools developed by the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority.


LEARNING OBJECTIVES

  • Identify risk factors that can influence a patient’s ability to process and understand healthcare information.
  • Describe behaviors that patients with low health literacy levels may exhibit.
  • Describe an approach to implementing oral and written health literacy communication strategies.
