Improving Alzheimer's Disease and other Dementia Care through Health Literacy
A toolkit is now available to inform professionals and caregivers about health literacy principles and techniques they can use to improve communications and enhance care for those with early Alzheimer's disease and other forms of dementia.
This toolkit was the basis for 20 onsite trainings with selected high impact organizations and will be widely distributed in Wisconsin. Download the toolkit.
Limited number of hard copies are available. If you would like a free copy, please contact Kari LaScala, Project Manager: 608-257-1655, ext. 5 or via email: email@example.com
This project is supported by a grant from Bader Philanthropies.
Health Literacy Summit
Over 350 people attended the 2017 Wisconsin Health Literacy Summit, which focused on how improved health literacy can help individuals become more engaged with their health and healthcare.
An additional 80 individuals attended the Medication Label Summit centering on how improving prescription drug labels can help patient understanding. Visit our Summit page for more information.
Wisconsin Health Literacy is working with a patient advisory council to design easy-to-read medication labels. Our work has impacted about 3 million prescription labels in Wisconsin. Read more about this project.
