Health, Communication and Literacy: An Annotated Bibliography (1998)

On September 8, 1998, International Literacy Day,The Centre for Literacy, in co-operation with Nursing Staff Development at the Montreal General Hospital, launched an updated Annotated Bibliography on Health, Communication and Literacy and a Travelling Resource Trunk on Health, Communication and Literacy at the Montreal General Hospital, part of the new McGill University Hospital Centre.

Studies show that levels of education and health can be correlated and that communication between clients and health care providers - in both oral and written forms - can make a difference in the quality of care and in the reduction of errors in follow-up and preventive health care. There is a growing body of research supporting these claims. This Bibliography, an updated version of the 1995 bibliography, contains 23 additional annotations on selected articles written after 1995 on the subject of literacy and health, and published in professional health journals.
