We’re so excited about our upcoming webinars on health literacy that we wanted to offer a sneak peek. This infographic on health literacy skills — “Health Literacy: Moving Beyond the Core” — will be part of the first of our two free webinars sponsored by the National Communication Association.
Two subject-matter experts from our parent company HealthEd will discuss how to evaluate and assess a medical practice environment for health literacy. The speakers are Ken Thorlton, HealthEd’s SVP and creative director, and Rita Williams, MA, CHES, director of health education.
This infographic shows the three levels that patients need to move through in order to improve their skills and take charge of their health.
Level 1: Core Health Literacy — Communication of health information results in an individual benefit.
Level 2: Engaged Health Literacy — Individuals are better able to act independently through increased knowledge, motivation, and self-confident.
Level 3: Influential Health Literacy — Individuals gain greater control over their life and events.
We hope you’ll register to join us at the free healthcare webinar on March 27. Afterwards, the webinar will be available for SurroundHealth members in our archives.
In addition to earning CEUs (approved for CHES/MCHES/RD), attendees will receive a high-resolution version of the infographic that they can use for internal training on improving health literacy skills.
