Health Literacy: what is it and why is it important?
Location:WECC Space, Westmead Hospital
2018 HEALTH LITERACY SEMINAR SERIES
Every day our staff provide important health information, instruction and advice to patients and members of the community. Despite our
best intentions, we know that a high proportion of these communications fail. This seminar series will be of interest to all staff (clinical and non-clinical) who have a role in communicating with our communities. It will cover best practices and research innovations in effective communication to improve the health literacy of our patients and communities. The series is jointly organised by the WSLHD Health Literacy Hub, and University of Sydney Health Literacy Lab.
