Communicating Health and Risk Manual (CHARM) (2013-2014)

Funded by Robert Wood Johnson Foundation

Funding Years: 2013 - 2014.

Patients and the public are being inundated with a flood of health data and being asked to take a greater role in applying this data to make medical decisions regarding their own health. While general guidelines exist for "best practices" in medical risk communication, this work has not always considered the specific communication goals of the risk message or the specific information or practical needs of the patient. The Communicating Health and Risk Messages (CHARM) project will address the gap in our current knowledge by informing the design of health risk data visualizations across the full spectrum of risk communication goals.
