This is the first in a series of research briefs focusing on questions of interest to practitioners and policymakers in adult literacy.
The author says it is becoming more urgent to develop a new comprehensive measure of health literacy. Developing such a measure is the next significant task facing health literacy research and practice.
If this goal is not accomplished, the author says, each new health literacy curriculum will be forced to build its own approach to evaluation, an approach that may not be compatible with other methods.
