Doeshealth literacy have a direct impact on health improvement outcomes?This is with relation to how various people respond to differenthealth issues in pursuit of healthcare attention (Joshi et al.,2014). Considering that, based on research conducted, it has provedpositive since health awareness leads to informed decisions but inother instances, this could be contrary since the lack of adequatefacts and evidence poses challenges in advancing of health issues byindividuals thereby developing challenges that hinder efficientuptake of healthcare services (Levy&amp Janke, 2016).


Arefood allergies on the rise among children? This is necessitated by the research on the ever increasing allergicreactions, particularly on children. Relating to the informationacquired, this seems to be true due to the unawareness of allergicreaction manifestation in children by most individuals and mainlyschool educators who feel less prepared (Guptaet al., 2011).

Tocombat this, research on the issue and the evidence obtained need tobe shared with other stakeholders so as to raise awareness on thecauses of the allergies, detection and prevention to aid in themitigation of the menace that is on the rise and more so to schooleducators who spend most time with the children. Training sessionsneed to be created and implemented to facilitate sharing of theknowledge and also the connection of ideas acquired would be vital inthe determination of the most reliable studies (Rudderset al, 2011).


Doesmusic therapy help in the intervention of post-operative pain?This is based on the research conducted that proves the situationquite uncommon. With information acquired, music seems to aid in asmall way to relieve the pain but is not a guarantee for ultimateelimination of the pain due to lack of substantial evidence tosupport the claims (McEwen&amp Willis, 2014).Concerning that, vigorous research needs to be implemented based onthe effectiveness of usage of the method in medical therapyactivities to help patients. Research needs also to be diversifiedand not only focus on pre-existent and controlled studies in order toobtain reliable evidence that would lead to uncovering of thebenefits of musical therapy (Economidouet al., 2012).
