in their treatment. The webinar will provide participants with guidelines and
tools for creating and evaluating consumer health materials and equip them
with a concrete understanding of how to apply health literacy and learning
style principles in the creation and communication of consumer-friendly
precision medicine information. Hospital and academic librarians will gain
the practical knowledge needed to help patients and health care consumers better
understand precision medicine and help researchers communicate their
findings to a lay audience. The websites and tools introduced during the webinar will be immediately very useful to all attendees.

health care consumers’ understanding of precision medicine concepts relevant
to their care.

consumer health materials.
