HEE presents a short course on Health Literacy

A short course for a big health impact

Nearly half the adults in England (43%) struggle to read and understand health information. When that information includes words and numbers, that rises to 61%. This means important details, such as dosage and how to take medicines can be missed. Health Education England has developed a free, 35-minute, online health literacy course. Designed for anyone working with or supporting patients, families and carers.
