Evidence-Based Health Literacy Training for Occupational Therapy Professionals

Evidence-Based Health Literacy Training for Occupational Therapy Professionals

Health literacy has been defined as "the degree to which individuals have the capacity to obtain, process, and understand basic health information and services needed to make appropriate health decisions" (Selden et al., 2000). Occupational therapy professionals have an ethical and clinical obligation to become knowledgeable about health literacy to provide "effective and safe treatment" (Smith et al., 2011). During this webinar, practical health literacy assessment techniques, and intervention and practice strategies will be presented that will improve the occupational therapy professional's ability to communicate with clients and caregivers most effectively, which will improve the their ability to make appropriate health decisions and make good decisions regarding their health and health promotion.
