Developing sound health literacy skills can be complex and being health literate is not simply the ability to read and write; it requires many different skills, including navigation though healthcare systems, comprehension, listening and interacting, analytical and decision-making abilities.

Abstract


HEALTH LITERACY is the ability to ‘gain access to, understand and use information’ for health (Nutbeam 2008). Developing sound health literacy skills can be complex and being health literate is not simply the ability to read and write; it requires many different skills, including navigation though healthcare systems, comprehension, listening and interacting, analytical and decision-making abilities.
