The literature demonstrates that low health literacy is associated with increased patient morbidity and mortality. Both The Joint Commission and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services identify effective communication as a cornerstone of patient safety. The teach-back method of patient education has been shown to assist patients in adhering to medication regimens and to adopt new lifestyle behaviors, ultimately improving patient outcomes.
