A previous study we identified the limited literacy among predialysis patients in a school hospital of the Midwest region of Brazil. To identify the HL was used Brazilian version of the Brief Test of Functional Health Literacy in Adults (B-THOFLA). However we believe that health literacy is more than reading and numeracy skills and so, we are currently validating a multidimensional instrument Health Literacy Questionnaire for assessing literacy in health to Brazilian population in order to explore the dimensions of the phenomenon and thereby reduce inequalities in health.
