- Select a PEM commonly distributed to clients in various healthcare settings (e.g., hospitals, physicians’ offices, clinics, home care agencies). Select one or two paragraphs from the document and include it in your paper, then calculate the literacy level of the PEM using the Fog, SMOG, and Fry readability formulas. Draw conclusions about the appropriateness of these tools for patient education. Make suggestions for changes to lower the literacy level, as appropriate.
