The United States Department of Health and Human Services’ Healthy People 2030 initiative identified improving health literacy as a high-priority goal, recognizing both personal and organizational health literacy as critical for providing equitable care. Personal health literacy refers to an individual’s ability to find, understand, and use information about health and health services to make well-informed health decisions for themselves and/or others. Low personal health literacy is associated with a variety of poor health behaviors in general medical populations and among older adults. In this Mitch Rosenthal Memorial Research webinar, Angelle Sander, Ph.D. and Monique Pappadis, Ph.D. focus on characterizing health literacy in a multicenter sample of individuals with traumatic brain injury and demonstrating its relationship to sociodemographics, injury characteristics, and health outcomes. 

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss why it is important to assess health literacy in individuals with TBI.
  • Identify factors associated with health literacy following TBI.
  • Describe two health outcomes associated with marginal/inadequate health literacy in persons with TBI.
