Health Literacy – Interactive Health Tutorials

The US Department of Health and Human Services provides the online service MedlinePlus. This tool presents interactive health tutorials allowing users to learn about the symptoms, diagnosis and treatment for a variety of diseases and conditions. Viewers can also learn about surgeries, prevention and wellness. Each tutorial includes animated graphics, audio and easy-to-read language.

While these step by step tutorials are no replacement for personalized healthcare, they can fill in some gaps for individuals seeking detailed, yet easily understandable, healthcare knowledge.
