Abstract: To assess medication literacy and important determinants of medication literacy in discharged patients with essential hypertension, we conducted a prospective cohort study in a tertiary hospital in Changsha, Hunan, China between March and June 2016.Patient’s demographic and clinical data were retrieved from hospital charts and medication literacy was measured by structured interview using the Chinese version of Medication Literacy Questionnaire on Discharged Patient between 7 and 30 days after discharged. The results showed that medication literacy was insufficient: > 20% did not have adequate knowledge on the type of drugs and frequency that they need to take the drugs, > 30% did not know the name and dosage of the drugs they are taking, and > 70% did not have adequate knowledge on the effects and side effects of the drugs they are taking. Medication literacy score decreased with age but increased with education level and length of hospital stay.
