Patient Education Materials Assessment Tools

The Patient Education Materials Assessment Tool (PEMAT) is a systematic method to evaluate and compare the understandability and actionability of patient education materials. It is designed as a guide to help determine whether patients will be able to understand and act on information. Separate tools are available for use with print and audiovisual materials. PEMAT was . created by a research team at AHRQ working with a panel of experts in health literacy, content creation, patient education, and communication.
