Health Literacy Online: A Guide for Simplifying the User Experience

Posted by on April 28th, 2017 Posted in: Health Information Literacy, Public Health
Tags: , ,

The Office of Disease Prevention and Health Promotion developed Health Literacy Online: A Guide for Simplifying the User Experience. This research-based guide aims to help professionals create health websites and other digital health information tools that are easy for low-literacy users to access and understand. The guide is written for anyone involved in creating online health content, from start to finish — writers and editors, content managers, digital strategists, user experience strategists, web designers, developers, and others. Health Literacy Online also emphasizes that writing and designing with low-literacy users in mind has big benefits for us all — ultimately resulting in health websites that are easier for everyone to understand and use. To access the guide, please see: https://nnlm.gov/bhic/hmsv
