About the Handbook of Research on Assertiveness, Clarity, and Positivity in Health Literacy
Health literacy in practice requires the development of techniques that ensure that the patient can better access information, understand its content, know how to use this information, and make better health decisions. If the patient makes better health decisions, there are immediate reflexes in health outcomes. The aim is to develop an approach based on the commitment and creation of an atmosphere of trust that reduces uncertainty, anxiety, and embarrassment based on a process of assertive, clear, and positive communication (ACP model).
"The ability of these competencies to act together allows synergy and strengthening of communication in Health, resulting in greater satisfaction of both parties dealing with health issues. On the one hand, the professional who must master the technique that promotes healing, but also care that builds
lasting relationships."

-Profs. Cristina Vaz de Almeida, Susana Ramos
