Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review



The existence of low literacy in health is currently a challenge for the community, as we are increasingly bombarded with increasingly diverse clinical information. In this way, we must follow all the development of this type of information, so that we have access to better sources of information and the ability to process it. However, this is not always possible, and there are still difficulties in understanding clinical information in the field of health. There are many reasons for this, and as such, it is necessary to identify the cause of poor understanding and health literacy, in order to implement the most appropriate tools to solve the problem. Associação Cura + appears as an association of promotion and education for health, with projects directed to the different age groups and the needs of each one. All, because with quality training and information, it is possible to change lives.
