Health literacy training
You can try the Health Literacy e-learning module on eLearning for Healthcare https://portal.e-lfh.org.uk/Component/Details/600363
The Health Literacy session gives a brief overview of why health literacy is important and an introduction to some techniques that can improve health literacy.
In addition to the e-learning module, the library service can provide bite-sized sessions.
You can join our Health Literacy Awareness Session on Monday 3rd July at 10am for an hour introducing health literacy.
If you cannot attend these sessions, the Library team can also offer sessions on request – please email firstname.lastname@example.org to arrange.
