Health Literacy and Communication Strategies in Oncology: A Workshop
Date: July 15, 2019 - July 16, 2019 (8:00 AM Eastern)
Health literacy is the degree to which individuals can access, comprehend, and use information to make health care decisions. However, estimates suggest that more than one-third of the U.S. adult population has low health literacy. Inadequate health literacy can make it difficult for individuals to engage in healthy behaviors and navigate the health care system across the cancer care continuum. To consider opportunities to improve communication in cancer prevention and care, as well as to better support individuals with low health literacy, the Forum is collaborating with the Roundtable on Health Literacy to host a workshop on this topic.
