Introduction to Health Literacy
Introduction to Health Literacy webinar is the first in a series of two webinars to be developed under the project Person Centred Care (PCC), funded by the National Diabetes Service Scheme.
The aim of the PCC project is to develop and sustain Person Centred and Health Literate practices in every aspect of the work of a CDE. The objective of the PCC project is to produce and implement evidence-informed, accessible resources and programs to enable CDEs to integrate person-centred care and health literacy into their everyday practice and to monitor and review the impact of these changes. For further information, please visit the project webpage.
This webinar is designed for CDEs, health practitioners and policy/program officers involved in providing direct patient care or developing resources for people with diabetes. The webinar aims to:
- Provide an introduction to health literacy principles
- Provide a brief overview of points to consider during consultations and when developing resources for people with diabetes
- Provide links to useful health literacy information and resources
