Article 1
The writer presents succinct and coherent information regarding the changes needed in the
healthcare facility that she works at. The challenges identified in this healthcare facility are
the need to improve health literacy among the service users. According to this article, the
main cause of readmissions and recurrent infections is due to medication non adherence,
which is associated with low health literacy (Narang, Sen, & Shukla, 2013).
The article findings are congruent with the evidence based research, that health literacy has a
vital role in promoting and sustaining health in the USA. Approximately 50% of the USA
adult population have difficulties in understanding their health complication and ways to
manage it. Evidence based practice proposes the application of teach back method, as it
enables bridge the loop that exists between the healthcare providers and the service users.
These empowers the patient retrieve and understand the basic information that is required to
make basic decisions that are related to the patient health and also follow treatment
instructions irrespective of patient gender, age, cultural and ethnic background (Hunter &
Franken, 2012).

integration of telehealth care to screen for patient risk for elevated cholesterol i.e. familial
hypercholesterolemia such as ASCVD Risk estimator used to estimate risk for atherosclerotic
cardiovascular disease (ASCVD), to guide the healthcare providers when doing an estimation
of when to start treating the patients with cholesterol (Thorpe, Barrett & Goodwin, 2014)
Despite the benefits associated with the risk estimator and its ability to reshape the delivery
of quality care, I cannot not help but wonder the cost implication associated with the risk
estimator device? How does it eliminate errors when calculating patient risk? Does it specify
the main issue that must be addressed, or is the information derived produce a general
impression of patient risk? I believe, a more evidence based practice research should be
conducted to weigh the pros and cons of the proposed change (Van Dyk, 2014).
