Knowledge is Health: Interprofessional Partnerships to Promote Health Literacy

An important aim of the NN/LM PNR application for the 2016-2021 is to support collaborations in the Pacific Northwest Region that foster effective use of current, high quality, information and decision support resources by health professionals, by students in the health professions, and by patients in order to treat the commonly encountered medical conditions in rural and underserved populations in Oregon. This project, Knowledge is Health: Interprofessional Partnerships to Promote Health Literacy supports that aim through two overarching goals: 1) to promote use of NLM resources in interprofessional education and practice in Oregon; and 2) to create strong collaborative relationships to improve access and use of the latest evidence on diabetes prevention and treatment (including NLM patient education resources) in Oregon health centers and clinics that target Latino and underserved populations in Oregon.
