Health Literacy Toolkit
In answer to this need, a Health Literacy Toolkit was developed. The combined effort was a result of support from McNeil Consumer Healthcare Division of McNeil-PPC, Inc. and input from the AAFP Foundation. The kit provides a wealth of valuable resources and tools for family physicians and their patients.
The field-tested toolkit helps family physicians communicate more effectively with their patients who are at risk for low health literacy. The resources help patients better understand their medications, take more responsibility for their health care, and use medications as prescribed.
For further information or to request your Health Literacy Toolkit, please contact Phyllis Naragon at 1-800-274-2237, ext. 4410.
