Health Literacy Evaluation
Increased communication outlets have necessitated the health sector in the country to come up with ways to provide credible, accurate, timely, and safe information to the general public (Cline & Haynes, 2001). This information available to the general public is referred to as Consumer Health Information (CHI) and consists of information on medical conditions, health, and multiple medical topics. This paper evaluates and analyzes a health consumer publication using the CDC Clear Communication Index.
The publication to be used for this analysis is an online infographic titled ‘Are You at Risk for PAD?’ by the American Heart Association, published in June 2021. It was retrieved from https://www.heart.org/en/health-topics/peripheral-artery-disease/understand-your-risk-for-pad/are-you-at-risk-for-pad-infographic
The target audiences of this publication are adults over the age of 40, particularly those with diabetes, African Americans, and smokers, as they are at a higher risk of contracting peripheral artery disease (PAD). The purpose of this infographic is to raise awareness of PAD. The publication does this by identifying those who are at a higher risk of getting PAD and highlighting ways to minimize the risk of PAD.
This paper uses the seven categories of the CDC Clear Communication Index to evaluate the quality of the infographic. The detailed analysis of the publication within these categories is as follows:
