There is an assumption that health literacy is higher among health professionals, allowing them to improve the health literacy of their patients. This study explored health literacy profiles of health science students in Nepal, the future health professionals and educators of health literacy.
This article briefly recalls why low levels of health literacy should be considered to constitute a public health issue. It then proposes the concept of health literacy as a possible lever to help health care systems to more effectively take social health inequalities into account. Finally, it provides concrete tools for field workers, both clinicians and quality of care managers, and emphasises the importance of an organizational approach to health literacy.
A cross-sectional research study was conducted to explore factors associated with and predictors of emergency department (ED) use among community-dwelling older adults. Data were collected using questionnaires regarding demographic characteristics, health literacy, comprehensive assessment instruments, and ED use. Age, fall frequency, number of diseases, number of medications, health literacy, nutritional status, cognitive function, and activities of daily living were associated with ED use. Age (adjusted o...
Health literacy is a strong predictor of health status. This study develops and tests a structural equation model to explore the factors that are associated with the health literacy level of rural residents in Central China.
In the last decade, the attention for health literacy has increased in the European Union. This is due to three main reasons. First, reviews have shown that inadequate health literacy is associated with worse health outcomes, higher health care use and expenditure. Second, in all European countries the population is aging and the number of chronically ill people is rising. Improving health literacy in this group can offer greater opportunities to take an active part in society, be independent and improve qu...
This study set out to determine individuals' proficiency in finding, selecting, and making appropriate health insurance decisions for a positive healthcare experience. Primary data were collected by means of a cross-sectional online survey of 1,469 adults in the United States. Using separate multivariate regression models, we examined the relationships between patient characteristics and an individual's ability to choose, compare, manage, and use health insurance plan benefits. Across all four constructs, y...
Health literacy (HL), the ability to seek, understand and utilize health information, is important for good health. Suboptimal HL has been associated with poorer health outcomes in other chronic conditions, although this has not previously been studied in patients with psoriasis.
Limited health literacy is a barrier to optimal healthcare delivery and outcomes. Current measures requiring patients to self-report limitations are time-consuming and may be considered intrusive by some. This makes widespread classification of patient health literacy challenging. The objective of this study was to develop and validate "literacy profiles" as automated indicators of patients' health literacy to facilitate a non-intrusive, economic and more comprehensive characterization of health literacy am...
To test theorized patient-level mediators in the causal pathway between health literacy (HL) and 1-year mortality in adults with cardiovascular disease (CVD).
Systematic investigations of health literacy in German patients are rare and mostly based on subjective self-assessment.
Despite weak health literacy can be considered a con-cause of vaccine hesitancy, it is rarely taken into account when discussing about this subject. The association between health literacy skills and vaccine acceptance has been shown to be uneven when using general measuring tools, also depending on population settings and type of vaccine considered. Vaccine literacy has been built on the same idea of health literacy, but very few specific tools have been developed until now. It is desirable that more of th...
Health literacy (HL) is a concept that concerns individuals, as well as health systems and health professionals. This study was conducted to determine health literacy and affecting factors of nursing students. A descriptive-cross sectional design was used. First and fourth year nursing students were included in the study (n = 303). A questionnaire and the Adult Health Literacy Scale were used for collection of the data. Most (84.8%) of the students were female and 60.4% were studying in their first year...
Frailty is a state of vulnerability to stressors which may result in high mortality, morbidity, and health-care utilization in older adults. Whether health literacy, graph literacy and numeracy are associated with frailty is unknown.
Investigation of a multimedia, computer-based approach to improve knowledge, attitudes, self-efficacy, and receptivity to cancer clinical trials among newly diagnosed patients with diverse health literacy skills.
Enrollment in therapeutic cancer trials remains low, and is especially challenging for patients with low health literacy. The authors tested an interactive technology designed for patients with diverse health literacy skills with the aim of improving patient receptiveness, willingness, knowledge, self-efficacy, and positive attitudes regarding clinical trials.
Health literacy has been linked to breast and cervical cancer screening with inconsistent findings, which may result from the use of nonprobability sampling and a health literacy instrument that measures a subset of health literacy.
Health literacy (HL) skills are essential to enable self-management and shared decision-making in patients with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Limited HL in these patients is associated with poorer outcomes. It is not clear what the burden of limited HL in patients with T2DM across countries and what factors influence it.
Health literacy (HL) is an important determinant of health and health behaviours, and there is a need to monitor HL levels among all population groups. It is therefore essential to develop instruments to assess HL during childhood and adolescence. The aim of this study was to examine the cross-national measurement invariance of the instrument Health Literacy for School-aged Children (HLSAC) in four European countries.
Cancer prevention efforts are newly focused on the older adult population. Adult literacy and health literacy findings and suggestions can help shape more efficacious health communication strategies and thereby increase the "accessibility" of important health information and the potential for healthful action. National and international surveys of adult literacy skills have consistently offered problematic findings that older adults have more limited proficiencies than do younger working adults and face dif...
After hospitalization, many older adults need post-acute care, including rehabilitation or home care. However, post-acute care expenses can be as high as the costs for the initial hospitalization. Detailed information on monthly post-acute health care expenditures and the characteristics of patients that make up for a large share of these expenditures is scarce. We aimed to calculate costs in acutely hospitalized older patients and identify patient characteristics that are associated with high post-acute ca...
Health literacy (HL) influences a patient's comprehension and judgment of health-related information. A rigorous assessment tool is needed to screen for low HL in order to improve it.

Heart failure (HF) remains the most common diagnosis of hospital admission among U.S. adults. Although diagnosis and treatment have improved, mortality rates have not changed, and mortality risk remains high after hospitalization. The current researchers examined how limited health literacy is associated with mortality risk in adults with recent hospitalization due to decompensated HF. Researchers conducted a systematic literature search, selecting three cohort and three intervention studies. The fixed-effe...
In this study, we aimed to investigate the effect of health literacy of the patient caregiver on the care results of palliative care patients.
Health literacy has received growing attention in recent years to reduce health disparities. Health literate individuals can gain access, understand and use health information to maintain, improve and promote good health.
Chronic pain is a significant public health problem that is associated with several negative health outcomes, including increased health care cost, decreased productivity, and prescription opioid misuse. Although efforts have been made to curb the growing opioid epidemic in the United States, further research is needed to better understand individual difference factors that may be associated with greater pain and opioid misuse. Lower levels of health literacy, defined as the ability to obtain, understand, a...
