Description

Health literacy is the ability to interpret and apply health information. Poor health literacy can result in exacerbated inequalities, inappropriate use of medication, and poor health outcomes.

This course will provide details and context of health literacy, raise awareness of its importance for healthcare practitioners, and discuss tools, resources, and techniques that will aid healthcare practitioners in communicating with patients and improving their health literacy.
