2016 Health Literacy Development Course

In 2016 the Outer East Health and Community Support Alliance and the Inner East Primary Care Partnership ran the Eastern Region Health Literacy Development Course, delivered by the Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health. The Health Literacy Development Course is designed to build the capacity of agencies to respond to health literacy at both a client and an organisational level. Participation in the course includes a range of organisations from across the region including Local Government, Community Health, State Government, Community Organisations, Specialist Services and Primary Health Network.

The course duration was 6-months, with four full-day workshops held bi-monthly. Following each workshop, participants undertook a small project of approximately 40 hours within their organisation. The purpose of the projects was to integrate health literacy practice across the organisation to embed learnings and create sustainable change.
