Irvine California - Institute of Healthcare Advancement conference

Some resources from the Institute of Healthcare Advancement Health Literacy conference 2011

Dean Schillinger brought along a really powerful couple of videos from young folk on food and eating. I found the second one particularly good.

From AHRQ: Health Literacy Universal Precautions Toolkit The toolkit offers primary care practices a way to assess their services for health literacy considerations, raise awareness of the entire staff, and work on specific areas.

From HRSA: Unified Health Communication (UHC): Addressing Health Literacy, Cultural Competency, and Limited English Proficiency is free, on-line, go-at-your-own-pace training that has helped more than 4,000 health care professionals and students improve patient-provider communication.

Heaps more but just wanting to throw some stuff at you while it's fresh.
