Health Numeracy - The Message Behind the Numbers

Health Numeracy - The Message Behind the Numbers

Event Date: Thursday, May 15, 2014 - 3:00pm to 4:00pm EDT

Over the past few years NQC has held TA calls on health literacy - an important topic in HIV care. However, as grantees become more invested in performance measurement, its time to talk about what the numbers actually mean.

Some of the topics to be discussed include the types of data commonly used, calculating measures and interpreting data sets. This call will help us all understand the message behind the numbers and give a new perspective on data interpretation.

Learning Objectives:

  • Increase knowledge of patient and provider factors that contribute to patient understanding of numeric health information

  • Identify skills and competencies required for accessing, analyzing, and applying quantitative health information

  • Identify best practices and tips for presenting quantitative health information to patients

NQC suggests that grantees review these resources before the upcoming TA Call. This will help you to frame questions for our presenters and enhance your learning experience.
