Pfizer Clear Health Communication
Pfizer Clear Health CommunicationUnderstanding health information is everyone's right. For patients, it means being able to follow instructions from a doctor, nurse or pharmacist; manage a chronic illness; and/or take medication properly. For health care practitioners, it is about helping patients understand and act on health care information. Millions of patients encounter difficulties when they try to understand health information — which in turn has a negative impact on health outcomes and the entire health care system. As a result, Pfizer has taken a leadership role in advocating for Clear Health Communication. All health care information providers have a responsibility to ensure that the information given to patients is communicated in a way that is understandable and truly accessible.
