Training from CDC

CDC offers five online health literacy courses for health professionals. We recommend that you take the introductory course “Health Literacy for Public Health Professionals” first and “Writing for the Public” second. The other courses can be taken in any order, depending on your interests.  
CDC also offers a consumer and patient communication skill-building module, Good Questions for Good Health. It encourages question-asking and provides strategies for formulating and asking questions before, during, and after medical appointments. The Toolkit includes a presentation,presentation notes, skill building activity, take-home handout, and an evaluation form.
