We welcome healthcare staff and QI staff to a free, one-hour, live webinar on Wednesday, February 7, 2018, at 1:00 pm EST about Enhancing Patient Health Literacy in a Primary Care Setting. Cindy Brach, M.P.P, senior health policy researcher at the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality (AHRQ), will discuss the AHRQ Health Literacy Universal Precautions Toolkit (2nd Edition) and cover the following objectives:
• Understand how spoken communication effects health literacy
• Understand how written communication effects health literacy
• Identify self-management and empowerment strategies for patients
• Identify additional health literacy support systems for patients
The AHRQ Health Literacy Universal Precautions Toolkit can help Nurse Practitioners and clinicians in primary care settings reduce the complexity of health care, increase patient understanding of health information, and enhance support for patients of all health literacy levels.
