Description

In Europe, nearly 50 percent of people suffer from low health literacy. People with low levels of health literacy often experience problems with understanding health information and have poorer health outcomes. Health professionals can be unaware of low health literacy problems; however, effective communication is associated with improved participation, self-management and health outcomes.
On completion of this training you will be able to apply person centred communication strategies to enhance health literacy skills and promote the health of patients with low health literacy by effective self-management.
Consists of three competencies:
1) increase knowledge and awareness
2) teach skills
3) sustain skills and behaviour change
