AHRQ Launches Health Literacy Web Site

The Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), as part of Health Literacy Month, has launched its new health literacy web site.  You’ll find all your favorite practice improvement tools, like the AHRQ Health Literacy Universal Precautions Toolkit, the Pharmacy Health Literacy Center, training programs, including The SHARE Approach and the TeamSTEPPS® Limited English Proficiency Module, as well as information for researchers, such as links to AHRQ health literacy data and funding opportunities.  AHRQ would love to hear your stories of using AHRQ health literacy tools.  E-mail AHRQ at: healthliteracy@ahrq.hhs.gov and let AHRQ know what impact AHRQ health literacy tools have in your organization.  Go to: https://www.ahrq.gov/health-literacy/index.html.
