Subcontract: Education and Outreach Regarding Understanding Maternal Health Literacy and Maternal He

This educational and outreach project informs the National Library of Medicine (NLM) and the National Network of Libraries of Medicine (NN/LM) about maternal health literacy and maternal health-related decisions. The Contractor, Dr. Sandra Smith, Center for Health Literacy Promotion, is a pioneer in the field of maternal health literacy and the proposed contract will provide education and training materials about maternal health literacy for the NLM and NN/LM, medical librarians, and perhaps other health professionals. Educational and training materials will be developed by the Contractor in consultation with the NLM. The Contractor?s outreach and educational efforts may result in presentations, reports, or publications (some of which may occur after the completion of the contract). The Contractor will provide an executive summary to the NLM that introduces the educational materials developed within this contract and discusses how an expanded conceptual view of health literacy and maternal health literacy insights might be used to further NLM?s and NN/LM?s consumer health informatics and health literacy outreach, educational, and research efforts.
