Building health literacy skills with the workforce: Turning training into action in Derbyshire

1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

With Jane Hawley, Healthcare Public Practitioner, Derbyshire County Council.

Since early 2019 Jane has been leading on developing and embedding a health literacy approach across the Derbyshire healthcare system from within Public Health. The focus so far has been on:

  • Building the skills of the wider public health workforce by raising awareness of health literacy
  • Supporting a range of partners to turn their learning into action as they find ways for their teams and services to become more health literate.
  • This will enable more people in Derbyshire to be active partners in managing their health and wellbeing
