2022 Pediatric Grand Rounds | Digital Health Literacy Challenges for Patients with Germline Cancer Mutations
As medicine has become increasingly more complex and specialized, information that helps patients make informed decisions becomes increasingly less accessible. Patient adherence is critical to outcomes and understanding barriers to adherence, including health literacy, access to information, and prevalent misinformation, are critical for oncologists to be aware of and develop tools to combat.
The purpose of this lecture is to inform oncologists of easily accessible misinformation that impact patient adherence, and strategies to improve health literacy and access to good quality information. While this talk focuses on patients with a germline cancer syndrome, a subset of patients that we do care for, the concepts are generalized to all patients and delivery of medical care.
City of Hope Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Physicians, Advance Practice Practitioners, City of Hope staff and research teams.
- Identify sources of medical misinformation, as keeping abreast of their narrative can help combat health illiteracy.
- Distinguish sources of high quality medical information that is accessible to a general populace.
- Integrate discussion of information/misinformation into patient interactions, to help them develop tools to educate themselves.
- Outline tools to improve health literacy among our patient population.
- Discuss possible barriers and biases which may impact patient care (i.e., race, ethnicity, language, gender identity/orientation, age, socioeconomic status, attitudes, feelings, or other characteristics).
