Health literacy linked to better asthma control
from MedPage Today
Baseline health literacy is associated with better quality of life and improved disease control in asthma patients, researchers found. For every point higher that they scored on a measure of health-related print literacy, patients had better asthma-related quality of life and asthma control, as indicated by a 0.63-unit increase in the Mini-Asthma Quality of Life Questionnaire and a 0.52-point improvement in the Asthma Control Questionnaire, according to researchers.
