Quick Guide to Health Literacy

The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion (ODPHP) has just developed the Quick Guide to Health Literacy for health professionals. The guide is a quick and easy reference, filled with facts, definitions, tips, checklists, and resources. The guide’s fact sheets provide a basic overview of health literacy concepts. They also offer strategies for improving the usability of health information and health services through communication, knowledge-building, and advocacy. Examples of health literacy best practices are included. The Quick Guide materials are user friendly and action-oriented. They can be easily reproduced, either individually or as an entire unit. Please go to to view and download the guide.
