Health Literacy refers to a person’s ability to access, understand and act on health related information. This is affected by an individual’s knowledge, skills, experience and beliefs. In addition, the complexity of the message and the health professional’s ability to communicate clearly are also important contributing factors. It’s more important than ever that we don’t assume a person's level of health literacy.

We need to make sure that they understand the information so that they can act on it and stay healthy. By the end of the workshop participants will be able to:
  • Define health literacy
  • Identify prevalence and effects of low health literacy
  • Understand their role and importance of communicating clearly
  • Apply “Universal Precautions” in health communication

The Health Literacy workshop will be delivered virtually over the Zoom platform. As long as you have access to a computer with a camera and microphone, iPad, iPhone or android device, you'll be able to participate.
