Health literacy is a major challenge and many patient education leads and health care providers struggle with time and resources to address it. Interventions that have been shown to improve health literacy include: health provider training, patient training (self-management), and alternate document design. The toolkit is thus divided into the following sections: Create Awareness, Health Professional Training, Get Patients Involved, Alternate Document Design, and Resource Suggestions.
