Society as a whole is responsible for improving health literacy, but most importantly the healthcare, public health professionals, and the public health systems.

Health literacy skills are not only a problem in the public. The relationship between the disease and health literacy level is in part because of an individual’s ability to read English, evaluate blood glucose levels, and communicate with medical professionals., a call for cultural-specific patient education is needed to achieve the control of diabetes and its adverse health outcomes in low- to middle-income Vietnamese-American immigrant communities.

For others, it is New Literacy, digital literacies, media literacy, literacies, and so on.

Diabetes Health Education for Latinos through Innovative Informational Materials. Overview The goal of the project was to develop easy-to-understand informational materials about diabetes for Spanish-speaking Latinos based on personal testimonial accounts. The developed materials addressed health literacy issues affecting Latinos by using non-print mediums such as a low-literacy brochure, an audiotape, as well as TV and radio programs. The importance of this project as it relates to health literacy and health status is two-fold: Latinos residing in the United States are disproportionately affected by diabetes, and about 56% of Latinos residing in the United States is functionally or marginally illiterate.

(7/424) Vulnerable populations: considerations for wound care.

Race/ethnicity, immigration, health insurance, and literacy--along with patient-provider communication and understanding of and adherence to treatment protocols--are societal factors that affect the provision of optimal healthcare. Wound care practitioners should be aware of the need to address these factors in vulnerable groups, including the effects of racial/ethnic care disparities, immigration, low income, uninsured or underinsured status, and literacy/health literacy on health and wound care. The literature shows that care is not always perceived to be or equitably provided across different ethnic and economically diverse populations. Hence, clinicians must strive to listen to and interact non-judgmentally with vulnerable patients. Each patient's physical and psychosocial concerns must be assessed without malice and clinicians must work with community, state, and federal agencies to enhance access to necessary services. Wound care patient teaching materials need to be developed that consider the literacy and language skills of the community served. Once the type of wound and its appropriate treatment are determined, wound care practitioners must consider patient teaching, vulnerability, cultural, and economic constraints of care, along with strategies for prevention of complications and hospitalizations.  (+info)
