Express Outreach: CAM Health Literacy and Older Rural Adults

The goal of the project is to improve health literacy about complementary and alternative therapies (CAM) among older rural adults through development, presentation, and evaluation of two education modules. The objectives of the project are to: a) develop two education modules (i., health literacy and CAM, and ii., electronic health information seeking); b) implement the modules with a group of older rural dwellers; c) evaluate the content of the modules; and d) evaluate two delivery methods. The modules will be presented to older adults in one Montana rural community. Of particular interest is the acceptability of using a webinar format for presentation of one of the education modules.
