Health Literacy: Improving Patient Understanding – National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF)**
27 September, 2016 from 1:00 to 2:00 PM ET

National Patient Safety Foundation (NPSF) LogoJoin this NPSF webinar to learn about the challenges that patients have understanding healthcare information. For instance, did you know that health literacy affects some patients more than others?

Oral and written communication strategies to address this problem will be discussed along with three health literacy tools developed by the Pennsylvania Patient Safety Authority.

Learning Objectives:
  • Identify risk factors that can influence a patient’s ability to process and understand healthcare information.
  • Describe behaviors that patients with low health literacy levels may exhibit
  • Plan an approach to implementing oral and written health literacy communication strategies.
