Finding credible health information and identifying misinformation and fake news (Session 5 - mini series) FULLY BOOKED

Event Date and Time: 
28 April 2021 11.30am to 1.00pm

CDHN is delivering a Health Literacy Training Mini-series during April for people in communities. The series will consist of five unique training sessions. 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 has been designed to be interactive and participative with use of breakout rooms and Zoom polls and 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. 

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. 

In this session, participants will gain skills which will enable them to identify fake news and misinformation and be made aware of trusted sources to access accurate health information on a range of topics including COVID-19. 

  • Increased understanding of health literacy
  • Increased awareness on how to identify misinformation and fake news
  • Gain skills and knowledge on where to access reliable sources of health information

Closes with short insight gathering session for participants to share their experiences of using health information and making health decisions. 

This session is open to anyone with an interest in the topic.
