It is important for all healthcare staff to realize what it is like to be a patient and understand the language of healthcare from the patient’s point of view. This presentation, geared toward healthcare personnel, is a good refresher for those who attended the 2013 PPMC Cultural Diversity Committee’s Conference on Health Literacy or an excellent overview for all those who were unable to attend last year’s conference.
Nurses, physicians, residents, students, allied health professionals, and all hospital staff please join us for this informative talk!
