Article of the Week
Failure to understand risks may lead to dangerous delay in seeking medical care
Researchers from the University of Oklahoma and the University of Granada, Spain recently conducted a study examining patients' likelihood of seeking medical attention after experiencing a heart attack. The researchers found that patients lower in numeracy were less likely to seek such medical care. In addition, the researchers found that low numeracy impacted the type of treatment that patients chose. For instance, patients with low numeracy were more likely to select riskier experimental treatments than patients with high numeracy.
