Need for more research in patients’ health literacy
This paper introduces the concept of health literacy to the Danish health field by sharing the definition, conceptual model and matrix from the European Health Literacy Survey (HLS-EU). The general results of the HLS-EU are presented to show how health literacy can be measured, and how limited health literacy is a challenge for various European countries. The fact that the term health literacy is not easily translated into Danish might be a barrier for its wider use and dissemination. However, this should not be an excuse for lack of attention or action in Danish health services.
