Thursday, July 23rd Health Literacy Ethics in Public Health Emergencies


Back to Package

Public Health Emergencies like COVID-19 put additional strain on health communication. Some populations at higher risk of infection are also populations who face health literacy burdens. I review three ethical challenges to effective communication in public health emergencies. I explain health literacy strategies for addressing these challenges. And I offer some suggestions for communicating time-sensitive health information effectively.

Participants will be able to:

  • Objective 1: Explain 3 ethical challenges to effective communication during public health emergencies
  • Objective 2: Identify at least 3 distinct ethical challenges posed by COVID-19
  • Objective 3: Develop a plan for enhancing communication during public health emergencies
