Abstract

This article describes the development and field testing of topic-specific instructional materials on diabetes with 98 patients at two large teaching hospitals who had low vision and/or low literacy. A pretest and posttest administered during field testing revealed an 81 percent reduction in wrong answers overall and a 72 percent reduction in wrong answers by a subset with low vision.
