Podcast Interviews With Those In-the-Know About Heath Literacy


Health Communication in Context of Each Person’s Life (HLOL #224)

Christine Wilson has focused on health communication throughout her career. Her experience includes being Vice President for Marketing and Communications at Fox Chase Cancer, Vice President for Communications at the American Association for Cancer Research, and now Vice President for Advocacy Communications at the National Patient Advocate Foundation (NPAF). Wilson brings in the patient’s voice and narrative to make complex medical and scientific concepts understandable and meaningful.

In this podcast, Christine Wilson talks with Helen Osborne about:

  • Health literacy is about understanding what is important to each person when giving and sharing health information.
  • Communication needs can change over time such as when getting a new diagnosis, being in treatment, and living with a medical condition.
  • Necessary skills include actively listening, asking critical questions, and having systems that allow sufficient time for good communication.

Health Literacy from A to Z: Practical Ways to Communicate Your Health Message, Third Edition, by Helen Osborne. Many chapters address what health literacy is, who it affects, and ways to communicate more clearly.
