Measuring health literacy: A challenge to curriculum design and evaluation

Research Brief | Published in 2008 | Updated June 11, 2012
Authored by Andrew Pleasant

There is a growing interest in health literacy and in developing curricula for health care providers and for the general public. However, developing curriculum without accompanying evaluation plans is like starting a race without a finish line, and current measures of health literacy are not up to the task of evaluating curriculum. This research brief critically reviews the literature on health literacy measures and proposes a future direction.

Research Brief | Published in 2004 | Updated June 11, 2012
Authored by Linda Shohet; Samantha Green

This is the second in a series of briefs that focus on evaluative research into the use of alternative means of health communication; these include plain language, audiotapes, videotapes, interactive media, and visual images. Searches were conducted of the medical and education literatures as part of a Health Literacy Project that examined the communication needs of patients with limited literacy or other communication barriers. The guiding question was: ‘What impacts have been documented in relation to the identified
target groups?’
