Summary:

The US Department of Health and Human Services discusses how those with literacy proficiency can still struggle with health literacy. When a patient or client struggles with both basic literacy and health literacy, much support is needed to help facilitate understanding of health information. Combine the concerns around opioid misuse with concerns related to health literacy, and one can see how the healthcare team has an important job to tackle to address concerns and support patients and clients.

Objectives:

The goal of this presentation is to discuss health literacy strategies to help increase patient and client understanding of issues around prescription opioid use. Upon completion of this webinar, learners will be able to
  • Identify the importance of the interprofessional healthcare team for addressing health disparities and improving healthcare comprehension
  • Describe concerns related to health literacy and opioid use
