Prescribing for patients with low health literacy/Fichas para recetar medicinas a personas que no saben leer bien
It's always a helpful reminder for me to go back to the basics. Where There Is No Doctor (Donde No Hay Doctor) was one of the first books on community health I ever read. I was reminded by a colleague at HIFA2015 that the book includes what are called "dosage blanks." These are forms with sun/moon graphics to help people with low health literacy to take their medications at correct times.
I'm excited to share with/remind you about this resource. I plan to use it even with my patients here in Boston. Also, Where There Is No Doctor is available in many other languages aside from Spanish and English. This is a great tool for nurses who provide medication instructions/education.
