Health literacy is defined as ‘the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate decisions’ (White, 2008 as cited in Ingram &Kautz, 2012). Please watch the AMA Health Literacy Video (4.5 minutes), it is very interesting.

Please answer the following questions. Be thorough and thoughtful in your responses.
1. Which scenario or individual in the video surprised you the most? Why?
2. Identify “health literacy” issues you have witnessed in your role as a care provider or as a recipient of care.

3. Who should be responsible to assess “health literacy” before providing health information?

4. How can you promote health literacy in your work and clinical setting?
