New Materials Development

What kinds of materials does UAMS CHL develop?
Our experts can help you develop a wide range of custom patient tools and health materials (such as health education resources, new forms, and website content) in both English and Spanish.  In addition, we have developed a number of community and patient engagement resources that are available for purchase.

To promote optimal understanding and use of health content among patients and consumers, our development process incorporates:

  • Health behavior theory
  • User-centered design principles
  • Health literacy and plain language best practices, including a target level of difficulty being easy (about 6th grade)

How does UAMS CHL create new health materials?

To create new materials, we follow an iterative process which includes:
