Online Health Literacy Training Course

The Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) has developed a free online interactive training course entitled “Unified Health Communication: Addressing Health Literacy, Cultural Competency and Limited English Proficiency.” The training course is divided into five modules:

Module 1: Introduction to Health Communication
Module 2: Health Literacy
Module 3: Cultural Competency
Module 4: Limited English Proficiency
Module 5: Capstone Activity

As noted in the HRSA press release: “The course’s five modules take four to five hours to complete. Modules 1 through 4 provide an introduction to health communication, health literacy, cultural competency, and limited English proficiency. In Module 5, participants can apply information learned in previous modules to test their ability to communicate effectively with patients. Self-paced instruction allows participants to complete one or more modules at a time. The modules’ textual information is enhanced by colorful graphics, interactive elements and video vignettes.”
