Advancing Pharmacy Health Literacy Practices Through Quality Improvement


These modules were developed by Abt Associates, Inc., under contract with the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ), and were prepared with guidance, consultation, and feedback from the Task Order Officer at AHRQ, health literacy and pharmacy consultants, and the Pharmacy Faculty Advisory Panel listed below. In addition, several pharmacists, pharmacy students, and residents as well as pharmacy organizations participated in a series of pharmacy health literacy quality improvement case studies that informed the inception and development of the curricular modules (go to Appendix I for an abstract of the case study findings). We thank the following individuals for their invaluable contributions to this project:
