Advancing Pharmacy Health Literacy Practices Through Quality Improvement

The four PowerPoint® slide decks have been created for use in pharmacy courses. Each of the slide decks includes sufficient content for a 50-minute class, and can be used independently or with the other slide decks. The slide decks include breakout class activities and may be further augmented by incorporating relevant activity guides, described further in section 4 below, into the class. Table 1 below lists the 4 slide decks, the related activity guides, and which ACPE standards they map to.
