During this project, a number of tools and presentations were developed. This section includes resources developed to support DHBs, PHOs and organisations interested in learning more and providing health literacy training.
Health literacy mentoring workshop
This half-day workshop was designed for people who already have knowledge of the background to health literacy and the Three-Step Model to better health literacy. This is essential for the mentoring approach to work. Participants wanted to provide mentoring to their staff about how to use health literacy and, in particular, the Three-Step Model to better health literacy in consultations with patients and families.
The purpose of this workshop was to:
- build on participants' existing knowledge of health literacy and the Three-Step Model and provide participants with the tools they could use to mentor their staff to use health literacy tools and strategies
- highlight potential issues participants might encounter during mentoring
- provide a number of practice mentoring opportunities for participants
