Health Literacy Programs

Health education programs that improve the ability of patients and/or the general public to obtain, process, and understand basic health information needed to make appropriate decisions that impact their health. Health literacy includes the ability to describe health concerns and symptoms accurately; interpret test results; analyze the risks and benefits of different treatment options; understand instructions on prescription drug bottles, appointment slips, medical education brochures, doctor's directions and consent forms; locate useful health care information; and negotiate complex health care systems. Health literacy is more than the ability to read. It requires a complex group of reading, listening, analytical, and decision-making skills, and the ability to apply these skills to health situations.
