Zusammenfassung

Zur Bewältigung der COVID-19 Pandemie wird der Gesundheitskompetenz (GK) der Bevölkerung eine entscheidende Rolle zugeschrieben. Surveys zur Erfassung der subjektiven COVID-19 bezogenen GK belegen eine unzureichende GK in der Bevölkerung. Interventionen sollten diese stärken.

Abstract

Health literacy (HL) is considered to play a decisive role in coming to terms with the COVID-19 pandemic. Surveys assessing subjective COVID-19-related HL demonstrate insufficient HL in the population. Interventions should aim to improve it.
