Health Literacy for Clinical and Non-Clinical Staff
Thu. 11 May 2017, 9:30 am – 12:30 pm AEST
It has been recognised that low levels of health literacy is an issue for health consumers. Health literacy doesn't necesarily improve by having a group of consumers reviewing health information brochures on a website. There is much more to health literacy. Health literacy can only increase when an organisation has the necessary systems and structures in place, and engages in cross-sector collaboration.
Health Issues Centre is offering a half-day workshop on health literacy for health and community services, condition-specific organisations, local government and clinical and non-clinical staff.
Who is the workshop for: team leaders, executive and middle managers, project managers, clinical and non-clinical staff.
What is covered:definitions of health literacy, the dimensions of a health literate organisation, cross-sector collaboration techniques, how to work with consumers as partners to address low level health literacy, how to monitor and evaluate your health literacy work.
Handouts will be provided. Morning tea is provided.
This training is also available for groups of more than 10 participants at your health and community service location. The group session is costed as a group fee plus travel costs.
