Abstract: The Evaluation Summary document presents the research findings from the Health Literacy Program for Minnesota Seniors (HeLP MN Seniors). This includes the results from the needs assessment focus groups, the workshop pre-tests and post-tests, and the outcomes assessment survey that were conducted as part of the pilot workshops. The findings were used to inform the development of an evidence-based health literacy workshop program for older adults.
Description: The Health Literacy Program for Minnesota Seniors (HeLP MN Seniors) is a joint project between the University of Minnesota’s Health Sciences Libraries and the Minnesota Health Literacy Partnership. Through the work of a multi-disciplinary team of health sciences librarians, health literacy specialists, public health professionals, and senior care specialists, HeLP MN Seniors has worked to create an evidence-based workshop program to build capacity and enhance efforts to improve the health literacy status of older adults. The workshops serve as a model health literacy program for seniors that is available for use by others interested in improving health outcomes through health literacy initiatives.
