CDC Clear Communication Index Train-the-Trainer
Presenter: Anne Conner

Anne Conner, the NER’s Health Literacy COI Leader, created a presentation on the CDC Clear Communication Index to share with departments at her hospital. The CDC Clear Communication Index (Index) is a new research-based tool to plan and assess public communication materials. Cynthia Baur, the CDC’s Senior Advisor for Health Literacy, presented an introduction to the Index at our Community of Interest’s September webinar. You can watch the recording of the September webinar on our Health Literacy Community of Interest website.

The Index may be new to staff at your organization and presents a great opportunity to be the first to spread word about this helpful resource and use it to create and assess communication materials such as patient education resources. Anne will demo her presentation for you and share her experience working with diabetes education and the infusion department. You can borrow the presentation she created to use at your own hospital/organization.
