"many people involved with rehabilitation services
will have barriers to their treatments based on health literacy"

Research has found that only 12% of the American public has proficient health literacy skills, estimating that 90 million Americans do not have the health literacy skills to successfully navigate the US health care system. Consequences of poor health literacy are damaging for individuals, communities and societies.  The significant prevalence of this problem makes it likely that many people involved with rehabilitation services will have barriers to their treatments based on health literacy. This webinar will share current research about health literacy and how it impacts the health care encounter.  Through interactive learning activities, participants will become equipped with assessment and intervention strategies that align with best practices.  You will be prepared with knowledge, skills, and resources to be able to assess your work environment and begin health literacy interventions immediately after the workshop.

1.Participants will understand how health literacy is connected to health disparities.
2.Participants will be able to explain the relationship between health literacy and rehabilitation outcomes.
3.Participants will be able to appraise the utility and value of common performance-based and environment-based health literacy assessments to make sound clinical judgements in their area of practice.
4.Participants will be able to demonstrate skills associated with best practices for health literacy in terms of oral communication.
5.Participants will be able to demonstrate skills associated with best practice for health literacy in terms of written communication.
6.Participants will identity strategies for action planning and advocacy in their organizations to improve health literacy for their clients.
