About the NNLM Reading Club

The NNLM Reading Club is a selection of “ready-to-use” book titles along with free and downloadable materials designed to help libraries support the health information needs in their communities

An Introduction to Health Literacy

Health literacy involves the information and services that people need to make well-informed health decisions. Learn more about the aspects of health literacy, why it's important, how it can be addressed, and how NNLM supports health literacy.

Clinical Conversations Training Program

Clinical Conversations allows clinical trainers or managers to offer brief trainings embedded into regular staff meetings or trainings that they already facilitate, as a way to offer continuing education that does not take time out of already busy schedules. The primary goal of Clinical Conversations is to increase knowledge and awareness of health literacy and associated skills and tools. The program includes 7 subjects, each containing 3-12 modules with PowerPoint slides, printable handouts, e-mail follow ups, facilitator guides, and evaluation materials.
