Topics in Health Literacy
One of MAPS' goals in 2018 is to ensure that patients, residents, and families understand and are equipped to collaboratively help improve systems in ways that advance safety. During National Patient Safety Week in March, MAPS co-hosted a webinar "Re-imagining Consent in the Age of Health Literacy" with Stratis Health, Hennepin County Medical Center, and the Minnesota Health Literacy Partnership. The speaker was Christopher R. Trudeau, an associate professor at the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences' Center for Health Literacy. In the webinar, participants learned how to communicate legal and health information through the informed consent process in ways that both engage patients and better protect healthcare organizations.
