Patient comprehension profiles: recent findings and strategies.

Abstract

Poor comprehension of instructions is a major cause of failure to achieve desired results in patient education. Tests to measure comprehension levels of patients and formulas to predict readability levels of materials can effectively determine gaps between instruction and comprehension. Strategies, many of which require a minimum amount of additional effort, can be applied to eliminate gaps and thereby achieve a better quality of care through educational programs.
