Our Wisconsin Health Literacy (WHL) division's goal is to improve health and health care through better communication. WHL's services include:
- Awareness Building: Presentations and public information on who is affected by health literacy, and how it can impact outcomes
- Consultation and Assessment: Assistance to organizations evaluating their health literacy environment and determining steps for improvement
- Education and Training: On-site programs to help health care professionals improve patient satisfaction, quality of care and patient safety by reducing the effects of limited health literacy.
- Plain Language: Review and/or editing of documents to ensure readability and understandability
- Advocacy: Support for local, state and national initiatives relating to health literacy
- Health Literacy Projects: Community-based health literacy programs help bridge the gap between the communication skills of consumers and the demands that the health care system places upon them.
- Health Literacy Summit: biennial conference featuring national speakers and over 25 different breakout sessions and a poster presentation.
