South Riverdale CHC is offering Health Literacy, a Centre for Collaboration, Motivation, and Innovation (CCMI) designed program. The Health Literacy program introduces concepts that support and emphasize the importance of communicating health information clearly, through a tailored approach specific to the needs of the client. Health information is presented in consideration of individual client needs, and deliberately delivered in a manner that is more conducive for clients to receive and process the information. This will increase a client’s ability to make informed healthcare decisions and have greater influence over the navigation and access of healthcare information and services.
In this training, participants will gain an understanding of Health Literacy concepts and learn practical skills for engaging with patients to promote clear and effective communication, and help clients set and achieve their goals for health.
Who uses Health Literacy?
This training is ideal for front line service providers at all levels as well as administrative and communication staff in an organization.
How long is this training?
Health Literacy includes a 3.5 hour training. During each training, participants receive:
Health Literacy Workbook
Skilled facilitators who understand the contextual reality of working in health care settings
Registered participants must bring a sample of a flyer or a communication tool that they use in their work with their clients to the training. This will be reviewed using the tools that participants will learn in the training.
