Description

Health Literacy Masterclass: Using health literacy for health service improvement and community development.

Proudly presented by Deakin Health Systems Improvement Unit - http://www.deakin.edu.au/cphr/our-research/health-systems-improvement-unit


Proudly sponsored by Deakin Rural Health - http://www.deakinruralhealth.com.au/


This workshop presents a systematic approach to developing and delivering health literacy strategies to improve services. It enables participants to develop planning and practical skills which improve health and wellbeing. Interaction with leading experts and practitioners who are experienced in tackling the challenges will i) support participants to build networks and ii) be inspired to tailor, develop and deliver fresh approaches. The masterclass is aimed at researchers, policy makers, managers, health promotion/clinical practitioners and students.


Using the latest health literacy research and practices, this masterclass will demonstrate how to develop fit-for-purpose interventions to reduce inequalities in health service access and engagement.


The masterclass will introduce the Ophelia process (OPtimising HEalth LIterAcy and Access), a structured process for identifying and responding to health literacy needs by co-designing locally relevant interventions.

Measurement of health literacy will also be presented, including the widely used Health Literacy Questionnaire (HLQ) and its use in needs assessment, evaluation, and quality improvement.


Key topics include:

• Understanding the scope and determinants of health literacy

• The role of health literacy in health inequality

• Using the Health Literacy Questionnaire (HLQ) to identify diverse health literacy challenges

• The Ophelia process for co-designing, implementing, and evaluating health literacy interventions

• Participatory and place-based approaches to health literacy (organisational and community)

• International perspectives in health literacy policy and practice
