Summary:

How many times have you considered whether a patient truly understood or would remember how to follow through with discharge instructions or prescribed medication instructions? Despite verbalization of understanding, how can you reinforce patient comprehension? 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. Join this webinar to help increase your understanding of the state of health literacy and learn how to educate more efficiently.

Objectives:

The goal of this presentation is to discuss health literacy and strategies to help increase patient and client understanding of issues around prescription opioid use. Upon completion of the webinar, learners will be able to:
  • Define health literacy
  • Discuss background issues of health literacy
  • 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
