Health Literacy and Health Professionals - 2008
Phase II - Health Literacy Research Project
This research project was phase II of a three-phase project. Phase I looked at the needs of adult learners when accessing health information. This phase looked at the needs of health professionals when communicating health information. Phase III looked at the needs of seniors when accessing health information.
The goals of phase II were:
We developed and distributed a survey for health professionals. We handed out this survey at a health professionals’ workshop, mailed it to all the community health centres, hand delivered it to pharmacies, and e-mailed it to our health contacts. We contacted a wide variety of health professionals including:
pharmacists, doctors, dieticians, speech language pathologists, medical
secretaries, and nurses.
In our Phase I research adult learners named
pharmacists and doctors as their first sources for health information.
For this reason, our analysis of the findings focuses on responses from
pharmacists and doctors.
Summary of Findings:
