Assessing Literacy and Health Literacy   

Literacy and health literacy are imperative for effective person-centered care, but they’re often misunderstood or difficult to accurately assess. This module examines four types and measurements of literacy and related skills; helps learners distinguish between “general literacy” from “health literacy”; explains how health literacy impacts patient outcomes, health experiences, and health costs; shows how to identify who may be at risk; and delivers proven strategies for improving health literacy.
