Health Literacy

Great Rivers Partners for Health-e People - Healthiest County 2015, La Crosse County
bringing health literacy awareness to our community.

Healthcare is a two-way conversation. Make sure you are giving your patients the opportunity to join in! As a healthcare professional, you can learn more about how proven health literacy strategies can help you communicate more effectively with patients. The web presentation, Health Literacy Awareness: Plain Language for Your Patients provides a brief but comprehensive overview of the problems caused by low health literacy, and how you can better work with patients to enhance their understanding of their medical issues.

If you are interested in attending a training session about health literacy or having your organization host one, please contact us.

Are you a patient or healthcare consumer? Learn how to get more out of your visits to the doctor by looking at this brief web presentation, Health-e People Ask Questions. Follow the simple suggestions in the program and you will know the best questions to ask during your appointment.
