Limited Health Literacy

Limited Health Literacy: "And I think it is ironic that health providers of all kinds, and health educators -- I'm afraid to say -- as well, have used the complexity of their language as a marker of their own sophistication and education. In fact, it is the exact opposite. It is far harder to explain something in simple terms than it is to use textbook phrases, and I think that's the objective that we have to move toward, to turn back the responsibility and the definition of doing a good job to one that includes plain speak and ordinary conversations in the delivery of medical care."
