Development of Patient Education Professional Practice Guidelines to Promote Health Literacy

The purpose of this project is to begin the process of developing concise patient education practice guidelines for health professionals which emphasize health literacy strategies. The Health Care Education Association (HCEA) will develop practice recommendations for patient education processes to effectively and efficiently meet the health literacy demands of patients/consumers. To support this endeavor HCEA, is requesting funds for the services of a medical librarian to conduct a literature search. The search will focus on the four components of patient education: assessment, planning, intervention and evaluation. The University of Pennsylvania Biomedical Library will be contracted to perform the literature search.
