Health literacy is the “ability to read, understand, and act on health care information” (Center for Health Care Strategies, 2005). In the context of health promotion, an individual’s health literacy is critical to his or her buy-in and maintenance of healthy behaviors. It is important to understand that not all of your clients will have the same degree of health literacy (Authors).
