Health literacy training sessions

Health literacy is about people being able to understand health information. It’s about us making it easier for them to do this. It’s talking to patients using everyday words. It’s writing to them in a way that’s clear. This helps our patients make informed choices about their health. The average reading age of adults in the UK is 9-11 years old. Half of adults find it hard to understand health information. So they struggle to use it to help their health and wellbeing. This creates health inequalities. The regional health literacy team are offering some new training sessions that will help you to understand health literacy and how to use …

Free training from the Personalised Care Institute – Supporting people with frailty

Frailty, which describes how our bodies become vulnerable as they gradually lose their in-built reserves, is increasingly common, affecting more than one in 10 people over the age of 65, and over half the population over 85. Frailty leaves people vulnerable to sudden changes in health, at higher risk of adverse outcomes such as falls or disability and less able to recover from accidents. To support people with frailty to maintain their health and independence, new NHS guidance for integrated care boards recommends the use of proactive and personalised care approaches like continuity of care, shared decision making, personalised care support plans, and named co-ordinators who can provide a clear …
