The Captain's Log: Charting the Course for Literacy and Health in the New Millennium (2001)

First Canadian Conference on Literacy and Health

In partnership with 26 national health associations, the Canadian Public Health Association raises awareness about the links between literacy and health among health professionals. Specifically, over the past nine years, CPHA's National Literacy and Health Program (NLHP) has promoted plain language health information and clear verbal communication in the health profession throughout Canada.

The NLHP has undertaken numerous projects in the following are as:
• seniors' prescription medication use
• access to health services and health information
• poor health communication and its impact on patients' informed consent and health professional liability
• hard-to-use forms that undermine the independence and wellbeing of low-literacy health consumers
• health among low-literacy youth
