Limited Health Literacy
Health Literacy has been included in our programs as an overarching theme. Pharos helps health care professionals to communicate effectively with low-literate patients. In addition we develop informative visual materials that can be used during conversations with patients/clients.
Also eHealth applications are often not yet tailored to the needs of people with low health literacy. Pharos encourages eHealth developers to involve clients/patients in the development of eHealth initiatives. We offer them know-how and help test their applications amongst people with limited health literacy.
