Event description

Description

Being able to understand health information, and make subsequent decisions based on this understanding, and engage with health and care structures and systems, is vital to a person's wellbeing and their ability to take positive action.

To support colleagues across the health and care system, Health Education England has commissioned 12 Health Literacy Awareness training sessions which will provide participants with enhanced understanding of the impact of health literacy on patients / service users, and provide practical tools to help address such issues.


This one-day workshop will increase participants’ knowledge of what health literacy is and why it is important. By the end of the session, participants will:

  • Have increased understanding of what health literacy is, and how it might impact on everyday practice
  • Have increased awareness of the impact of low health literacy on individuals’ everyday lives, and on the services that support them
  • Understand what low health literacy looks and feels like
  • Be familiar with tools and techniques that they can use in practice
  • Understand how effective health literacy approaches can support person centred care, positive behavioural / lifestyle changes, and enhance shared decision making
  • Be eligible to attend forthcoming Train the Trainer.

This workshop is suitable for anyone working within health and care organisations, and/or who has a responsibility for informing, improving and protecting people’s health and wellbeing.
