Low health literacy affects more than 90 million adults in the U.S.
Health literacy is an individual’s ability to obtain, understand, and absorb
the basic information needed to make good decisions about their own healthcare.
Low health literacy leads to “overall poorer health outcomes” and costs
billions of dollars each year.
When patients understand their treatment plan, they feel more optimistic and are more
likely to adhere to recommendations. For patients, surgery is a leap of faith. But
knowledge is power, and information gives patients a sense of control. If they have a
better understanding of what’s going to happen, it’s better for everyone.
