Health Literacy and Clear Communication eCourse

Improving the capacity of oncology patients to understand information related to their diagnosis, treatment, and post-treatment follow-up is key to closing the gaps that prevent health equity. A lack of health literacy, especially in underserved populations, can result in patients having difficulty understanding and interpreting information about their disease. This dynamic eCourse provides cancer care team members with the tools they need to be clear and concise in communications with patients and improve health equity in various situations.

Learning Objectives 

Through this 30-minute eCourse you will learn actionable strategies to:

• Use clear communication and body language
• Translate complex oncology concepts into plain language
• Calm fears and correct misconceptions
• Enhance cultural competency

This exceptional resource is free and open to the public. You do not need to be an ACCC member to participate in this eCourse, but you will need to create an account to register. Please click the "Registration Instructions" tab for more details.
