Health Literacy refers to a person’s ability to access, read, understand, and use health-related information to make informed decisions and modify behaviours that affect their healthcare needs. Promoting health literacy among patients creates a more collaborative care environment, one that empowers patients to have greater involvement and control over health decisions.

During this 3.5-hour workshop, participants will gain an understanding of Health Literacy concepts and learn practical skills for clear and effective communication with patients and family members.

Learning Objectives:
 Define Health Literacy
 Identify the prevalence and effects of low health literacy
 Understand their role and importance clearly
 Apply Universal Precautions in health communication
