Pepa said chemotherapy patients were selected because they typically receive the same family of drugs.She argues some of the current information for prescription drugs is written at a 12th grade or college reading level, making it difficult for the average person to understand.
"Less than a quarter of the population reads at that level," Pepa said.
Some of the newly designed forms feature more inviting designs, which include more white space, colors and larger type.
"It's material you'd want to look at and pick up," she said.
Pepa said low literacy adds tremendously to health care costs, particularly if patients don't understand directions or possible side effects.
"In those cases, patients might make a mistake with the medication and have to be admitted to an emergency room," Pepa said.

"It will give us information that will help us design something that works," Pepa said.
