Review a patient education document available at your workplace (or one you received as a patient) or a consumer health education web site and evaluate this piece of educational material for readability, cultural competency, and appropriateness for the intended audience. This is not a discharge form or a consent form.  Have a patient and/or lay person (not in healthcare) give you feedback on the usefulness of this educational document. Do not use this in a teaching session. Describe  the document or web page in detail (e.g., font, use of color, photos, use by a variety of patient groups, etc.).  Provide your evaluation of the document and the feedback you received from your patient and/or lay person. What are some suggestions you would make to improve the usability of the information you evaluated?
