At the Community Health Center Association of Mississippi, we focus on patients gaining knowledge that leads to empowerment when interacting with their healthcare providers and healthcare systems.
Numerous studies report that many patients feel inadequate when interacting with their healthcare provider. Often, we don’t understand the medical advice given, or don’t fully understand how to read the instructions on newly prescribed medications, etc.
A person’s health literacy can also be based on whether the individual can read, write, or hear well.
