Building health literacy skills with health professionals

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Ensuring healthcare providers can contribute to improving health literacy in patient – provider or public health environments requires HCP to be aware and understand HL principles. Therefore, the understanding of these principles need to be taught in undergraduate and post graduate healthcare degrees. Research has shown that this is not always the case. This session will discuss the strategies to embed HL in Undergraduate Medical/Nursing and AHP Postgraduate degrees in two universities in the UK. With Dr Evelyn McElhinney, Glasgow Caledonian University and Professor Joanne Protheroe, Keele University.
