TOFHLA (Test of Functional Health Literacy in Adults)

TOFHLA is used to measure functional health literacy--both numeracy and reading comprehension--using actual health-related materials such as prescription bottle labels and appointment slips. It is designed to assess adult literacy in the health care setting:

  • by health care providers, to determine the adequacy of their patients' reading and understanding of health care materials needed for their health care or health education;
  • by researchers, to assess patient health literacy as a variable in their research.
