This is a slide I used at this week's European Health Literacy Conference in Dublin. Most in the audience said it was a new way to look at a lot of the limiting narratives of contemporary health literacy. I agree.
*A colleague once stated that in the US alone from the late 1980s to now over 800 articles have been published on health literacy. The vast majority of them identifying what patients and consumers can't read or understand or do when it comes to health.
I think we can drop that mantra now, don't you?
