Doctor's Office vs. Emergency Room

Resource summary

Doctor's Office vs. Emergency Room

The Doctor's Office Vs. Emergency Room material offers guidance to providers who wish to support health literacy with their clients. The handouts (also available in Spanish, Vietnamese, Somali and Russian) can be printed and distributed to clients as part of a conversation on when to take a child to the doctor’s office or the emergency room. Supporting health literacy is a mechanism for practice transformation. These resources are available on the Washington State Department of Health website as part of the Transforming Clinical Practices Initiative.
