PURPOSE: While there is growing recognition of the importance of health literacy (HL) and its effect on health outcomes, functional measurement of HL remains a limitation in the respiratory field. Five domains recommended for inclusion in HL instruments include: access, understanding, communication, evaluation and use of information, are not addressed in current assessment tools. Additionally, current tools do not help clinicians and researchers to identify areas where work is needed to improve HL skills. Our Canada wide network aims to develop and validate a functional HL skills tool that will measure these five domains of HL in patients with asthma and COPD.
