Dr Heide Weishaar will be giving a presentation on Germany's national action plan for health literacy at our conference next week. If you would like to learn more, further details can be found on their website (translation to follow later this year).

We're really excited about some interesting, new research funded by Pharmacy Research UK (PRUK). Led by Paul Duell, a researcher at the University of East Anglia's School of Pharmacy, ‘Determining Patient Health Literacy during a Medicine Consultation’, looks at how health literacy can be accurately assessed during a medicine consultation with a pharmacist. Paul has over 25 years’ experience of working in community pharmacy and is currently the Chief Officer of Suffolk and Great Yarmouth Local Pharmaceutical Committee.
