The Health Literacy Competency-Based Curriculum for Health Professionals is both a curriculum and a curriculum planning tool for health professions faculty. Faculty can follow the steps described to teach health literacy competencies identified by the Council on Linkages in the Core Competencies for Public Health Professionals. Faculty can also follow the steps used by this curriculum as a model to create their own health literacy competency-based curriculum. Following the steps described, faculty will identify health literacy competencies, develop learning objectives, select evaluation procedures, and use recommended teaching tools.
