  • Mô tả: •109 unique health literacy measures were identified.•37 were non-English HL language measures and 72 were English language measures.•Many measures have not been properly validated for minority groups.•Improved instrument development and validation is needed to move the science forward. ObjectivesTo review the evidence supporting the validity of health literacy (HL) measures for ethnic minority populations. MethodsPubMed, CINAHL, and PsycINFO databases were searched for HL measures between 1965 and 2013. ResultsA total of 109HL measures were identified; 37 were non-English HL measures and 72 were English language measures. Of the 72 English language measures, 17 did not specify the racial/ethnic characteristic of their sample. Of the remaining 55 measures, 10 (18%) did not include blacks, 30 (55%) did not include Hispanics, and 35 (64%) did not include Asians in their validation sample. When Hispanic and Asian Americans were included, they accounted for small percentages in the overall sample. Between 2005–2013, a growing number of REALM and TOFHLA translations were identified, and new HL measures for specific cultural/linguistic groups within and outside the United States were developed. ConclusionsWhile there are a growing number of new and translated HL measures for minority populations, many existing HL measures have not been properly validated for minority groups. Practice ImplicationsHL measures that have not been properly validated for a given population should be piloted before wider use. In addition, improving HL instrument development/validation methods are imperative to increase the validity of these measures for minority populations.
