Scan of family literacy and health: Final report
A scan of the literature was conducted to answer the research question, “Does family literacy have a measurable outcome impact on health?” The purpose of the scan was to identify resources and literature for the development of a training module on family literacy and health, a joint venture of the NCCDH and the Centre for Family Literacy (Edmonton, AB). The findings indicate limited research on the topic has been conducted in Canada, and therefore most of the resources described in the report are from the United States.
Use this resource to:
- Become familiar with the literature that describes how family literacy influences health
- Identify topics for future Canadian research
- Evaluate current family literacy programs
