Health and specifically Medication Literacy is important in patient empowerment and in empowering patients and families as effective partners in ensuring optimal health outcomes. While there has is a reasonable body of evidence on this for adults, there has been very little work on medication literacy for children, specifically in terms of effective interventions. Adopting agreed upon nomenclature and developing and validating children's specific instruments -- such as infographics - will be important in moving forward, especially when these instruments can be actively incorporated into eHealth initiatives.
