Community Health Literacy Training Mini-series

CDHN is delivering a Health Literacy Training Mini-series during April for people in communities. The series will consist of five unique training sessions lasting 1.5 hours each. Each session will explore a different topic related to Health Literacy. The overall aim of the series is to increase awareness and improve knowledge and understanding of health literacy so that:

  • People have increased confidence when using health information and services and feel better equipped to make health decisions
  • Those who support people with health and social issues have a better understanding of people’s circumstances so they can provide the most effective and appropriate advice and help.

Each session will finish with a short insight gathering session where participants will be asked to share their experiences of using health information and making health decisions. 

All sessions will be delivered online using Zoom technology. Each session has been designed to be interactive and participative with use of breakout rooms and Zoom polls.  Depending on the participant’s role and interest, they may wish to attend only one session or a number of sessions. Please note there are limited places on each training programme and booking is essential.
