Free Webinar: Impact Studies in Health Literacy and Patient Activation

DATE: Thursday, July 29, 2010
TIME: 11AM - 12PM ET

Doug Seubert, a leading expert on Health Literacy

Low health literacy is a barrier to care, and populations with chronic diseases are at higher risk. Research suggests activation may help compensate for lower literacy skill.

This session will:
  • Cover impact case studies of five initiatives to explore effective methods to increase patient activation and to address the needs of patients with low health literacy
  • Examine relevant research, including key findings of the first large nationally representative survey to assess the level of patient activation and consumer engagement in health care.
    Join us today--an informed, actively engaged patient is a healthier one! This Webinar is free of charge.
