dc.description.abstractHealth literacy is an emerging public health issue that affects all ages, races, cultures, and income levels. Furthermore, an individual's literacy skills tend to be a stronger predictor of health status than any other demographic variable. There is currently a mismatch between individuals' health literacy levels and the complexity of the healthcare system, which could lead to poorer health outcomes of the client. The purpose of this research was to determine the accessibility of two outpatient clinics at Rusk Rehabilitation and their ability to provide a health literate environment for their clients as determined by an adapted version of the Health Literacy Environment Review and the Fry Readability Scale.eng
