How to measure your health literacy skills

An ABS survey has found only 41 per cent of adults have adequate health literacy skills.

The WSLHD Health Literacy Hub, in partnership with The University of Sydney, is offering staff a range of bi-monthly seminars to help improve the health literacy of our patients and communities.

If you have an interest in measuring health literacy, then the next seminar is for you!

Come along to hear practical advice about measuring health literacy in different settings and tips on where to find the best measures for your purpose.

This follows a successful seminar on developing easy-to-read written materials, which reached over 140 staff across the LHD and Primary Healthcare Network.

For the first time, the seminar will be offered to staff via video conferencing.
