Physician Assistant Focus Group Participants Sought
Attention Physician Assistants! We are seeking PAs (and PA students who have completed their clinical rotations) to provide feedback on a health literacy tutorial.
According to Healthy People 2010, health literacy is “the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions.”
The National Network of Libraries of Medicine, Pacific NW Region, is currently evaluating a web-based tutorial called “Addressing Health Information Literacy.” The tutorial was created by the Medical Library Association to assist clinicians with promoting improved health information literacy.
With this tutorial, we hope to deepen understanding and awareness of the impact of health literacy on patient outcomes, provide tools to educate and improve communication between providers and their patients, and support health care providers in improving the care of all patients by increasing health literacy.
Participants will be asked to take the online tutorial in advance (approximately 1 hour) and to participate in a 1 hour group discussion (either September 30 or October 1, 2010) at the Davenport Hotel in Spokane, WA, during the Fall WAPA Meeting. Participants will be paid $100 for their time, and will earn Category II CME. Please contact Patricia Devine at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
Help us find out what works best for you!
