Abstract or Summary
  • This research examines the impact of low health literacy among patients with End Stage Renal Disease. The sample included individuals who participated in a health education class (Pre-Renal Education Program) offered at the Samaritan Dialysis Services in Corvallis, Oregon. Data collection techniques included participant observation, individual interviews, evaluation of the Pre-renal Education Program, and S-TOFHLA measuring the health literacy level of the participants. The results show that forty-five percent of participants had limited health literacy. The overall evaluation of PrEP was positive and suggested that despite low health literacy of PrEP participants, the educational program is able to effectively convey relevant information and helps patients make appropriate health decisions.
