Topic Summary:

Health Literacy is a broad, complex yet critical topic in improving patient understanding. According to the Agency for Health Care Research and Quality (AHRQ) 40 – 80% of the medical information patients are told during office visits is forgotten immediately, and nearly half of the information retained is incorrect. We are fortunate to have a regional, national and international speaker on Health Literacy, Mary Powell, PhD, CRNP, CDE, Director of Graduate Nursing Education at Neumann University, to present and guide us in one aspect of this topic. Dr. Powell will teach us how to use the Teach Back Method as a powerful strategy that can be applied in practice to improve health literacy, adherence and patient satisfaction.
