Literacy and Health: Defining Links and Developing Partnerships (2004)

A Final Report to Population Health

This report discusses a project intended to help health care providers and administrators overcome barriers to reaching low literacy clients, and conversely, to make it easier for low literacy people to benefit from health services.

Objectives of the project include: to demonstrate the link between low literacy and poor health; to teach health providers to recognize signs of low literacy in their clients; to teach literacy and health workers how to use plain language and clear design in their documents; to teach health providers sound teaching principles for oral communication; to encourage partnerships between literacy and health workers, and; to encourage literacy teachers to incorporate health topics into their curriculum.
