Assessment of the Readability, Reliability and Quality of Online Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis Patient Education Materials

Joseph Spiking; Victoria Ignotus; Shane Patrick Moran; Lawrence Greenfield.

A recent Public Health England report stated that one of the ways to improve health literacy (a concept linked to a multitude of adverse health outcomes) was to have readable, high quality patient education materials (PEMs). The US Department of Health and Human Services state that PEMs should be written at, or below, the level of the sixth grade. This study assesses if PEMs that focus on Juvenile Idiopathic Arthritis (JIA) are written at the recommended reading level, alongside assessing if they are of suitable quality and reliability.
