October 26, 2014
The Opined Show

Farrah Schwartz is the Manager of Patient and Family Education at Toronto Rehab and the University Health Network. She joined the show to talk about the importance of health literacy in improving health outcomes and the surprisingly tremendous cost savings that could come with investing more in improving the public’s health literacy. Topics include the scope of health literacy, the obstacles to improving health literacy, the impact of online information, the role of health professionals in improving their communication skills, and — importantly — the economic impact of health illiteracy.
