By Susan OTR/L PhD Toth-Cohen, Cheryl OTR/L DrOT Miller, Mary FAOTA OTR/L OTD Muhlenhaupt and Audrey OTR/L MS Zapletal

Abstract

Synopsis: Health literacy is a significant factor impacting the efficacy of healthcare services. Initiatives related to health literacy demonstrate that OTs have unique opportunities to promote health literacy and facilitate its integration into practice. It is therefore critical to explore ways in which health literacy content can be incorporated into entry-­‐level OT curricula. Doing so will help ensure that future practitioners are prepared to meet key standards related to health literacy, including those established by ACOTE. This session will highlight strategies and methods to incorporate health literacy into entry-­‐level OT curricula
