This keynote session will set the stage for a thorough discussion of patient misunderstanding of prescribed drug label instructions as a common cause of unintentional misuse of medication, lack of adherence and adverse health outcomes. At greatest risk are those with limited literacy and English proficiency. Based on extensive research in this field with patients, providers and pharmacy groups, Dr. Wolf will share research findings, especially a recent study showing the impact of more patient-centered medication labels among patients with low health literacy.
About our Presenter: Michael S. Wolf is a health services researcher and cognitive/behavioral scientist with expertise in adult learning and cognition. For the past 11 years, he has studied health literacy-related issues, spanning the extent and association of limited literacy with various health outcomes, its meaning and measurement, and the development and testing of interventions to reduce literacy's impact on health. Since 2004, he has had more than 125 health literacy-related publications, has served on multiple national panels on health literacy, aging, and chronic disease self-management, and now actively leads numerous federal and private-funded studies pertaining to literacy skills, medication understanding, and adherence with colleagues across the country. He helped write the California State Board of Pharmacy and New York City bills on patient-centered drug labeling, which included both literacy and language concerns. His work in health literacy, and also in patient safety, has led to numerous national awards, including the first Pfizer Health Literacy Scholar Award, three Pfizer health literacy visiting professorships (Univ. of Illinois, NYU, Lincoln Memorial), the Institute for Healthcare Advancement Outstanding Health Literacy Research Award, the National Patient Safety Foundation Health Literacy Award, and a J. William Fulbright Distinguished Faculty Scholar Award to the United Kingdom.

PRESCRIPTIONS - Tr​evor H. Kaye, MD [cached]

Stephen Anzaldi Professor Michael Wolf, who researches drug labeling, holds up a seemingly contradictory warning on a prescription for Nexium given to his brother by a pharmacy in Washington, D.C.

Michael Wolf, an associate professor at Northwestern University's Feinberg School of Medicine who serves on an FDA risk-communication advisory panel, says in recent studies, more than half of adults misunderstood one or more common prescription warnings and precautions. In one study Dr. Wolf and colleagues found that patients better understood simple, explicit language on warning labels-like "use only on your skin" instead of "for external use only"-and those with lower literacy skills also benefited from picture icons, such as a sun with a black bar across with words, "limit your time in the sun."
