Health literacy presentations

This section includes a range of health literacy presentations for different groups and knowledge levels.

Health literacy for practice managers and admin staff

This 90-minute presentation was designed for practice managers and admin staff all from one PHO which has GP clinics in multiple locations.

The PHO was very keen to support this group to learn more about Health literacy so the group could understand what might be happening for patients when they come in or ring into the practice.

The purpose of this presentation was to introduce health literacy to a group of people who don't know much about health literacy. However, this group are critical in making changes to reduce the demands primary care practices put on patients to improve the patient experience.

The purpose of this presentation was to introduce health literacy to practice teams who don't know much about health literacy in the context of something they do know a lot about - self-management support for people with long-term conditions.
