Improving Health Literacy Awareness
This course is designed to help you identify the need for Health Literacy Awareness and to help you apply tools you already have to help patients understand and improve health outcomes. The interventions we discuss in the course are designed to be easily incorporated into your work and not add extra time to an appointment. The main point in Improving Health Literacy Awareness is that you can't easily tell who has high health literacy and who does not. It isn't a visual cue that you can use. These tools will help you and your team give better patient care with the result of higher patient compliance.
This course is designed for all physicians, clinicians and APC's.
At the end of this session, learners should be able to:
- Define health literacy & describe the association between low health literacy & poor health outcomes.
- Identify examples of health literacy based strategies with the potential to enhance adherence, quality, and outcomes at Advocate Aurora Health.
- Recognize and apply health literacy based strategies such as “teach back” and "chunk and check" to recognize understanding.
