About 9 of 10 Americans struggle to access, understand and act on health information. Limited health literacy is associated with medication errors, higher healthcare costs, and lower ability to self-manage chronic conditions. This webinar will help providers in Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) settings and other kinds of practices understand importance of creating patient-centered, clear health communication for all individuals. It will also teach specific practices that can help reduce health literacy barriers. Topics to be covered include:
- Evaluating how well patient education materials and patient forms meet health literacy principles
- Understanding how to develop educational materials to meet health literacy principles
- Assessing your healthcare setting and staff to identify and overcome barriers to health literacy
This free SurroundHealth webinar, sponsored by the National Communication Association, will help you understand health literacy and assess whether your practice environment is set up in a patient-friendly way. Plus: get a certificate of completion and earn CEUs (pre-approved for CHES/RD). /da
