Adults Living with Limited Literacy and Chronic Illness: Patient Education Experiences (2010)

Adult Basic Education and Literacy Journal, 4(1),24-33

This study investigates how Canadians with limited literacy skills make sense of their patient-education experiences. The authors cite a Canadian Council on Learning (CCL) study indicating that 60 per cent of Canadians don’t have sufficient skills to manage their health and their health-care needs. That can mean difficulty in taking medications correctly or using health services effectively.
