Abstract

Low health literacy is a growing concern affecting up to 20% of the Danish population. Low health literacy is defined by difficulties related to understanding health information and ability to engage with healthcare providers. Research has explored a variety of interventions to address the issue of low literacy. This study describes that educational curricula including lessons and practicing in didactics and health literacy may improve doctors' knowledge and approach towards this group of patients and indicates that healthcare providers generally can benefit from education in health literacy.
