AHRQ Health Literacy Universal Precautions Toolkit Available

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality is proud to announce the publication of the Health Literacy Universal Precautions Toolkit. The toolkit is based on the principles of universal precautions, or specific actions that providers can take to make health information more understandable for all patients. It is designed to be used by all levels of staff in practices providing primary care for adults and/or pediatric patients.
The toolkit includes:

  • A Quick Start Guide
  • The Path to Improvement, which outlines the six steps to fully implement the toolkit
  • Twenty short tools to identify and address areas that need improvement
  • Links to Internet resources
  • An appendix with resources to support implementation, such as sample forms, posters, PowerPoint presentations, and worksheets.

The toolkit was developed for AHRQ by University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Download a copy of the Health Literacy Universal Precautions Toolkit from: http://www.ahrq.gov/qual/literacy/.
