Navigating health and social care system and choosing the right service at the right time (Session 4 - mini series)

Event Date and Time: 
22 April 2021 11.30am to 1.00pm
Location: 
Zoom

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 learn more about navigating the health and social care system in Northern Ireland and choosing the right service at the right time to get the most appropriate and relevant help.  The training will also increase awareness about the range of services available within community pharmacy and how to access them. 

Learning Outcomes

  • Increased understanding of health literacy
  • Increased understanding of health and social care services
  • Increased awareness of services available within community pharmacy

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 in the community who uses health and social care services.
