Health literacy. Report from an RCGP-led health literacy workshop [UK]

This report, from the Royal College of General Practitioners, summarises the outcomes of a workshop on the importance of health literacy to patients and the UK National Health Service. The aim was to facilitate discussion about the principles around health literacy in primary health care contexts. The workshop ended with calls to continue discussions and develop a five-year plan of action to address the challenges of low health literacy, focusing on the themes identified in the workshop. Themes included: the challenges that health literacy brings, the importance of communication, low health literacy and health, good practice, interactive and critical health literacy.

A Prescription Is Not Enough: Improving Public Health with Health Literacy – 2013 [US]

This paper, by Pleasant et al (2013), was commissioned by the Institute of Medicine Roundtable on Health Literacy for their workshop "Implications of Health Literacy for Public Health: A Workshop". Health literacy is always present, but too often neglected. This paper focuses on the use - and the lack of use - of health literacy within efforts to address public health in the United States. In particular, this article focuses on efforts within state, local, tribal, and territorial public health organisations. Overall, while a growing body of evidence strongly suggests that health literacy can be effective in public health when explicitly addressed, the concept and associated best practices of health literacy do not seem to be consistently or universally used within public health organisations. As a result, the effectiveness of state, local, tribal, and territorial public health efforts is reduced and public health suffers.
