Health Literacy is the best medicine
Published on 12th October 2021
We all need good health literacy skills to understand health information correctly, ask questions and make informed decisions. For example, reading and understanding a medicine leaflet or finding the x-ray department in a hospital.
Health services are becoming more aware that they need to communicate clearly with people and take account of possible health literacy and numeracy needs. This talk looks at what health literacy skills we need to engage fully with health services and tips to make this easier.
Facilitated by Helen Ryan, Policy Officer, @Nala Ireland (National Adult Learning Agency).
