CPPH believes that all people should have access to clear and understandable health information that will empower and enable them to be active participants in their own healthcare. In line with this belief, CPPH applies health literacy best practices in the development of all of its patient education materials, including: using language that is at or below a 6th grade reading level; ensuring that resources are graphically pleasing and easy to follow through the use of images, streamlined layouts, bulleted lists, and a sufficient amount of white space; and practicing cultural competence by including language and imagery that appeal to the cultural preferences of targeted audiences.
