Fact: Only 12 percent of the U.S. adult population has proficient health literacy. And are you aware of your patients’ ability to understand and act on the information you give them?
To help address these issues, the Health Sciences and Human Services Library (HS/HSL) will host the Communicating With Patients Workshop on the following dates:
- Tuesday, Sept. 25, 12:30 p.m.-2 p.m.
- Tuesday, Oct. 30, 11 a.m.-12:30 p.m.
The workshop covers the basics of health literacy and clear communication, including tools that will assist you in creating easy-to-read materials. Also incorporated will be an opportunity for attendees to practice putting difficult medical jargon into plain language.
