Patient engagement can become the key to bridging a widening gap in the delivery of quality healthcare.
Administration is of the opinion motivating patients to take a more active role in the creation and application of the treatment plan will enhance the quality, efficiency and outcomes of healthcare delivered.
Conversely, analysts repudiate the contention patient engagement and patient centered care as political correctness rather than a disconnected establishment of the personable aspect of healthcare.
Health literacy is more than the inability to read information, prescription bottles or brochures provided by a physician while illustrations, medical pictures inserted in medical materials can be just as confusing.
Recognizing individuals with low literacy skills is not readily apparent with individuals reluctant to admit to this deficiency further substantiating the need for initiatives to train healthcare providers to recognize patients with the problem, communicate effectively and the creation of a patient centered delivery system.
The intent of this study is to analyze the current status of the problem to gain a better understanding of the issue as a means of fostering an atmosphere supporting health literacy, assess levels, develop strategies increasing health literacy, examine the impact of the training provided and assimilate the principles into curriculum going forward.
According to a report prepared by Division of Behavioral and Social Sciences and Education (DBASSE) based on the report Improving Adult Literacy Instruction: Options for Practice and Research more than 90 million adult Americans have deficiencies in literature to perform in a complete functionally viable and stable manner daily as indicated by the most recent survey conducted, (National Research Council, 2012) with only 38% of twelfth graders scoring at or above a proficient reading level.
There are two opportunities for adults deficient in literacy to attain the education: 1) enrollment in an adult education program, the largest source of funding is the federal government is the Workforce Investment Act, Title II, Adult Education and Family Literacy Act (AEFLA), and 2) creation of education courses made available in local colleges specifically for students academically unprepared for the rigors of college.
Of the adults enrolled in education programs (approximately 2.6 million participating in a federally funded program as of 2005) indicate wavering progress in literacy skills while the majority have yet to achieve sufficient literacy skills to function daily, (National Research Council, 2012).
