The Purpose of this course is to introduce the learner to the concept of health literacy and to apply a person-centered approach to it.
Health Literacy: The Person-Centered Way examines the knowledge gap in health and medical information between service providers and the general public. It has been estimated that over 33% of Americans are health illiterate. This course offers ideas on how to reduce the health literacy gap and better serve clients.
