Every day patients face numbers—reading electronic health records (EHRs), risk information, nutrition labels, navigating through the health insurance exchange market place, and more. But, can they derive meaning from the numbers to manage their health? Our free webinar explores how to communicate quantitative information to patients for decision making. 
 

 
You’ll learn:
·         Why information evaluability is what really matters
·          How best to communicate risk
·         How to convey numbers in a format and context that matches patients’ specific needs
