Past studies have shown that persons with limited health literacy skills are more likely to have chronic conditions and are less able to manage them effectively.
The Impact of Low Health Literacy on Health Outcomes
Health literacy encompasses oral and written communication, and the ability to access and navigate throughout an organization for health care information and services. It can include the ability to follow instructions on prescription bottles, read appointment slips, ask questions about medical procedures, follow treatment plans, and comprehend consent forms and discharge instructions.
