This webinar is sponsored by the National Communication Association (NCA).

About 9 of 10 Americans struggle to access, understand and act on health information. Limited health literacy is associated with medication errors, higher healthcare costs, and lower ability to self-manage chronic conditions. This webinar will help providers in Patient-Centered Medical Home (PCMH) settings and other kinds of practices understand importance of creating patient-centered, clear health communication for all individuals. It will also teach specific practices that can help reduce health literacy barriers. Topics to be covered include:
  • Evaluating how well patient education materials and patient forms meet health literacy principles
  • Understanding how to develop educational materials to meet health literacy principles
  • Assessing your healthcare setting and staff to identify and overcome barriers to health literacy
