To help cancer programs evaluate their current health literacy efforts and prioritize steps for improvement, ACCC developed a health literacy gap assessment tool. This tool is intended to help cancer programs advance their delivery of patient-centered care by integrating key attributes of a health literate healthcare program. By completing the assessment tool, cancer programs can identify educational needs and pinpoint areas where targeted education could improve patient care.
The tool has 6 assessment domains:
Upon completion of the assessment, you will receive a personalized report with scores in each domain. Using this report, cancer programs can customize short- and long-term goals for improvement, taking into account such factors as your program’s resource level, infrastructure, and administrative/leadership support and commitment to improve health literacy for your entire patient population or among high-risk populations.
*ACCC will not report your score. These assessment results are private and for program-improvement purposes only.
Take the Assessment
After you take the assessment, use these post-assessment resources to start your health literacy improvement plan.
