From The Krafty Librarian:

The CDC has created a free “Health Literacy for Public Health Professionals Online Training” program to help educate public health professionals about issues with health literacy (patients and the public lack of health literacy) and their role in addressing it.

The CDC is offering a free online course which can be accessed any time any where you have a computer with Internet access and 1-2 hours of spare time. After taking the course health professionals will have a better understanding of the significance of health literacy and will learn practical steps to deal with health literacy daily.

This course qualifies for continuing education credit for nurses, physicians, pharmacists, health information specialistis, etc.

This online course must be completed before 9/14/2011 to receive credit.
