Health Literacy: Health Literacy

Patient Family Education Committee and Werner Medical Library collaboration

The Patient Family Education (PFE) Committee and the Werner Medical Library are partnering  to improve health literacy across the system.  

Health literacy has been identified as a national priority area to improve patient family outcomes, deliver person-centered care and provide cultural, language, and age appropriate services.

The PFE Committee adopted the attributes of health literate organizations as a guiding framework.
