A successful transition to independent self-care requires patients to embrace educational materials provided by Skilled Nursing centers. This means patients must engage with instructional materials to fully understand their self-care task and increase their health literacy. This webinar will provide information on how to improve health literacy skills and health decisions.

What is health literacy?

Health literacy is the degree to which individuals have the ability to understand basic health information and services needed to make suitable health decisions. This session will also cover the critical aspects of selecting or writing patient self-care instructions for transitioning to independent self-care.
