CAHPS Item Set for Addressing Health Literacy
The Item Set for Addressing Health Literacy focuses on assessing providers' activities to foster and improve the health literacy of patients. The primary goal of these supplemental items for the Clinician & Group Surveys is to measure, from the patients' perspective, how well health information is communicated to them by health care professionals. It is part of a larger effort by the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to encourage a greater emphasis in the provider community on patient-centered care.
