What is Health Literacy?


Understanding basic health information includes (but not limited to):
  • Knowing your diagnosis and being able to describe it in one or two sentences.
  • Understanding your medications, why you are taking them, what to look for, which  diagnosis they correspond to, cautions, what to do if you miss a dose, etc…
  • What are the short and long term consequences of not treating your diagnosis?
  • Who do you call for questions about your health care or medication questions?
