I feel like Health Literacy is so important for patients to make the best decision possible for their health. I think it is especially important for Healthcare Professionals to keep this in mind when speaking to students transitioning from highschool to college or just transitioning to adulthood. Many children can take comfort in knowing that their parents or parental guirdian can make decisions for them. Kids don't have to worry about taking care of themselves or worrying about if they fully understand the information given to them because someone else will explain it in "kid terms."
What happens when they become an adult? Does anyone care about what happens? What do you think? Where do you stand on Health Literacy?
Have you ever come across a situation like this?
