Clinical Conversations is a program from the Network of the National Library of Medicine for training clinicians and other clinical staff who interact with patients about health literacy and related concepts. This program allows clinical trainers or managers to offer brief trainings embedded into regular staff meetings or trainings that they already facilitate as a way to offer continuing education that does not take time out of already busy schedules.
The primary goal of Clinical Conversations is to increase knowledge and awareness of health literacy and associated skills and tools. Clinical Conversations is comprised of seven subjects. Each subject contains 3-12 modules. Each module includes PowerPoint slides, printable handouts and e-mail follow ups. All of these materials can be downloaded and adapted as needed.
Learn more about this program and access the materials on the NNLM Middle Atlantic Region website.
