Health literacy lacking — as is my updating

I’ve been really slack about updating this blog lately. A sign that I have been WAY out of touch the last few weeks? I just found out YESTERDAY that the Institute of Medicine came out with a report in April saying that 90 million people — about half of all adults in America — have “inadequate” understanding of basic health information.

Since one of my stated goals is to discuss patient safety and quality issues, I figured I’d better post something. Better late than never.
