Health Literacy Awareness (3 hours group session)

Health literacy is a persons’ ability to access, understand, appraise and use information and services to make decisions about health.

Everyone who works in a healthcare setting, regardless of their role, needs to be aware of the barriers and difficulties experienced by many patients to understand and manage their own health. It’s worth remembering that at some stage in our lives, we too will be patients or carers, or both.

Learn more about health literacy, experience what it feels like to struggle to understand basic health information (no role play involved) and learn about tools and techniques we can all adopt to improve both our patients’ and our own health literacy.
