Health Literacy refers to a person’s ability to access, understand and act on health related information. In Canada, 60% of adults have low health literacy skills including 88% of seniors. Personal factors, as well as the complexity of the message and the health professional’s ability to communicate clearly, are all important contributing factors. It is essential that everyone in the health care system recognize their responsibility to use clear and effective communication skills in order to affect health outcomes. This workshop provides participants with tools and opportunities to practice skills and problem solve around barriers.
