Developing Health Literacy Communication Practices for Medical Students

Date of Review: March, 2021

In this resource, from MedEdPORTAL, M1 and M2s were taught health literacy in two 1-2 hour workshops that include didactics and small group, case based vignettes. The workshop includes practicing techniques such as teach back. The ppt and cases are great. The content isn’t at the level of offering videos or use of other learning techniques. The level of evidence of success is weak. Still the topic and content are worthy of use. –Aashish Didwania, MD, NCEAS
