Class to help clinicians go beyond readability formulas

March 28, 2017  //  FOUND IN: Updates & Resources

An overreliance on readability formulas and readability scores is a common mistake health care professionals make when writing materials for patients.

That’s why all Michigan Medicine clinicians are invited to participate in the Patient Education Center’s class, “Beyond Readability Formulas: Writing Clear and Effective Patient-Centered Educational Materials.”

Through the use of real-life examples, participants will learn to recognize elements that hinder understanding, and what language, layout, formatting and design methodologies help learners with all levels of health literacy comprehend and retain information about their health.

The course will be led by Ruti Volk, MSI, AHIP, Michigan Medicine Patient Education Librarian.

When: 3 p.m. – 5 p.m., Tuesday, April 25

Where: 2101 Commonwealth Blvd. Suite B, conference room 1462

Register through MLearning with the course code NURS-52431.

Certificates of attendance will be provided to participants.
