ISPM assessment tool ready to be used in China

Young people in leisure time

An assessment tool to measure health literacy in youth populations that was developed by Thomas Abel and his ISPM colleagues (HLAT-8) has been translated into Chinese (c-HLAT-8).

Originally developed by combining health promotion theory and Swiss data, it was tested and found to be a reliable, valid, feasible instrument for measuring functional, interactive, and critical health literacy among Chinese students.
