Health literacy training

From the MidContinental Region NN/LM blog:
The Health Resources and Services Administration offers a new, free, online course, "Unified Health Communication 101: Addressing Health Literacy, Cultural Competency, and Limited English Proficiencyā€¯. Those taking the course can receive five credits (CEU/CE, CHES, CME, CNE). The course is valuable for librarians as they reach out to provide support and information to the public and health professionals and would provide them another option to obtain continuing education units. In addition, The Unified Health Communication course complements The Medical Library Association and National Institutes of Health/National Library of Medicine (NLM) work in literacy research, curriculum design and hospital outreach. Freely share this information with other colleagues.
