Foundations in Family Literacy: Family Literacy and Health (2007)

Communication gaps between health care providers and people with limited literacy or English language skills create a major barrier to improving health outcomes for many Canadian families. Family Literacy and Health was developed by the Centre for Family Literacy in Edmonton in conjunction with la Fédération canadienne pour l’alphabétisation en français and is intended to address literacy and health issues among a range of populations in Canada.

This document is intended in particular for practitioners in the areas of health and family literacy and has the following specific objectives:
- to explore the relationship between health literacy and family literacy
- to look at ways that health and family literacy practitioners can work together to address common issues
- to establish a shared framework for bringing about positive changes in practice that will promote health literacy among Canadian families
