EBSCO patient education fact sheets adhere to the most current standards in health literacy. All patient education materials have been designed with the following goals in mind:
Decrease unnecessary technical details and terminology
Provide clear, concise explanations and recommendations
Follow readability guidelines set by CDC “Make your Message Clear” recommendations
Images are added to the text where they enhance the patient’s understanding of the content. Headings guide the reader to the causes, symptoms and treatment options.
