Do subjective measures improve the ability to identify limited health literacy in a clinical setting?
The researchers assessed whether the addition of Single-Item Literacy Screener (SILS) items or the Brief Health Literacy Screen (BHLS) to patient demographics readily available in ambulatory clinical settings reaching underserved patients improves the ability to identify limited health literacy. Their findings suggest that the BHLS and SILS items improve the ability to identify patients with limited health literacy compared with demographic predictors alone.
