Facilitating patient understanding of discharge instructions: Workshop summary – 2014 [US]

This Roundtable on Health Literacy workshop explored the aspects of health literacy that impact the ability of patients to understand and follow discharge instructions and to learn from examples of how discharge instructions can be written to improve patient understanding of-and hence compliance with-discharge instructions. The workshop featured presentations and discussions that examined the implications of health literacy for discharge instructions for both ambulatory and inpatient facilities. This report summarises the presentations and discussions of the workshop. Discussion focuses on the impact of discharge instructions on outcomes, the specifics of inpatient discharge summaries and outpatient after-visit summaries. The report also contains case studies illustrating different approaches to improving discharge instructions.

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.
