Health Literacy Project, Phase 1: Needs Assessment for the Health Education and Information Needs of Hard-to-Reach Patients (2001)

Background Document on Literacy and Health (Part 1)

The purpose of this document is to establish the rationale for conducting a Needs Assessment regarding the information and education needs of hard-to-reach patients at the Montreal General Hospital, part of the McGill University Health Centre (MUHC). These hard-to-reach patients include those with low literacy, those who face language and cultural barriers, and those who cannot process health information because of physical or cognitive learning disabilities. The overall purpose is to improve the health information given to and health education process of hard-to-reach patients, as well as determine ways to improve how health care professionals communicate with such patients. The findings of the Needs Assessment will be used in planning a Health Literacy Centre at the hospital.
