    Event Summary

    In 2012, the IOM published a discussion paper entitled “Ten Attributes of Health Literate Health Care Organizations.” Being a health literate organization has implications for how informed consent for research participation is obtained. This Webinar will discuss how adopting the health literate attributes pertaining to leadership, measurement, and training can improve the informed consent process. This Webinar will also cover the importance of taking health literacy universal precautions, and provide examples of strategies and simplified forms from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality’s Informed Consent and Authorization Toolkit for Minimal Risk Research.
