Health literacy literature review

11 Apr 2013 | Partners in Care

Workbase has prepared a health literacy literature review for the Health Quality & Safety Commission. The review provides an overview of evidence-based health literacy education, training tools and resources for health professionals available in New Zealand and overseas.

The literature review has provided guidance for the Health Literacy Medication Safety demonstration project that the Commission has initiated. The project aims to provide key staff in two community pharmacies with information and tools to increase their understanding of health literacy, adult learning theory and communication skills.

The demonstration runs until June of this year and an evaluation and results will be available by the end of July.

A copy of the review is available by clicking the link below.
