Quarterly UP Network Webinar | January 2018 Get Slides | Watch Recording | Read Transcript

Health literacy is a silent but significant barrier for adults, especially the elderly. Nearly nine out of 10 adults in the U.S. have some health literacy issues that reach across all socioeconomic, cultural/race, and education levels. Healthcare providers need to understand barriers and have strategies to address various health literacy areas. This educational webinar presented by the Home Health Quality Improvement National Campaign (HHQI) will explore several key areas including: measurement, navigation, verbal/written communication, and evaluation.


  • Identify three red flags that indicate health literacy issues
  • Explain how to check written patient materials for readability levels
  • Describe one method to assess patients’ understanding of patient education/instructions
