How many times have you considered whether a patient truly understood discharge instructions, medication instructions, or overall healthcare information? The US Department of Health and Human Services discusses how those with good general literacy skills can still struggle with health literacy specifically. Join the conversation about the seriousness of health literacy and how things may feel for those who struggle with health literacy.


The goal of this presentation is to discuss the definition and complexities of health literacy in light of the opioid crisis. Upon completion of the webinar, learners will be able to:
  • Define health literacy
  • Discuss background issues of health literacy
