New Complimentary Educational Module Promoting Clear Health Communication

Limited health literacy is a serious problem facing our health care system. By some estimates, nearly 9 out of 10 adults have difficulty using information that is routinely available from health care facilities, in their communities, and in the media. 

 

The newest educational module from NPSF, Promoting Clear Health Communication with Ask Me 3®, reviews the nature of limited health literacy as well as what health care professionals can do to help patients increase their understanding of health care information. View the 26-minute video individually or with staff and learn how to:

  • Define limited health literacy and identify its prevalence and impact
  • Identify potential at-risk populations and red flag behaviors related to limited health literacy
  • Outline best practices for improving patients’ understanding of health care information
  • Outline tactics for successfully implementing Ask Me 3 within organizations

 

Learn more and access the new educational module as well as other complimentary Ask Me 3 materials. Please note that registration and agreement with the terms and conditions regarding usage is required.
