Continuing Education for Health Literacy

October is Health Literacy Month!

From the National Network of Libraries of Medicine: “Health literacy requires a complex group of reading, listening, analytical, and decision-making skills, as well as the ability to apply these skills to health situations. For example, it includes the ability to understand instructions on prescription drug bottles, appointment slips, medical education brochures, doctor’s directions and consent forms, and the ability to negotiate complex health care systems.”

How do people access and understand health-related information and how can librarians help? Below is a list of free resources and webinars (some upcoming, some archived) focused on health literacy and the role of libraries.
