Health Education Research, 07/12/2012
Manafo E et al. – Overall, the selected articles demonstrated positive outcomes in supporting the health literacy skills of older adults. However, there are limitations in study designs and evaluation measures and outcomes of the programs remain unknown in demonstrating long–term impact in supporting health literacy skills. Further high quality studies with clear and strong research methodology are needed to develop and evaluate evidence–based interactive health literacy programs targeted specifically to older adults.
