Ethical Considerations of Health Literacy
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 health decisions." Assessing and measuring health literacy is still an ongoing endeavor, but numerous factors  can impact the strength of literacy. Factors include; age, primary language, reading ability, attention span, etc. Psychologists have an ethical responsibility to ensure patients and families understand their own health and treatment. Thus, this presentation summarizes the multi-factorial components of health literacy and strategies on strengthening literacy with the patients and families psychologists serve.

Learning Objectives: 
By completing this program, participants will able to: 
1.   describe organizational and personal health literacy.   
2.   identify strategies to help promote health literacy.
3.   describe ways one can incorporate techniques into clinical practice.
