Abstract

Reducing communication barriers to ensure promotion of patients’ rights to have information presented in a way that it can be understood and the right to participate fully in decision-making is consistent with policies in the USA, Canada, UK and Australia. For example, the Joint Commission (the organization responsible for hospital accreditation in the US) now includes communicative access and health literacy within its standards.
