Health Literacy Month
October is Health Literacy Month. A person’s health literacy affects their ability to gain access to, understand and use information to make choices about their own health and care. With the increase in remote and telephone consultations it can be even more challenging for practitioners to know if the person has understood.
- Would you like more confidence to communicate sometimes complex health information in a way that it can be easily understood?
- How can you empower the people you support to make informed decisions about their health?
- Do you know where to go for trusted health information? Can you spot fake health news and help others to do the same?
To raise awareness of Health Literacy we are planning a webinar on Tuesday 25 October 2022 at 1:30 - 2:30pm. You can book a place on Turas Learn. You will need a Turas login to book. If you don’t have a Turas account you can register here.
There is also an eLearning module on Turas Learn https://learn.nes.nhs.scot/26672/health-literacy. It takes 30 minutes to complete, and learners can create an action plan to revisit later.
