I work at a diabetes clinic in Esfahan, Iran, and educated patients about self care behaviors. Because most of the patients referred to this center generally are from low-income community, so we decided to use health literacy strategies such as plain language and teach back for educating them. It was really helpful and these methods helped patients to better understand. I also make very simple printed materials such as Bulletin with Simple Photos and photonovel for them. I really happy that my patients can better undrestand and better act. Posted 2014.
