Digital and Health Literacy Training: Improving communication with people.

FREE CPD accredited Digital and Health Literacy training course now available to all members of the workforce within Nottingham and Nottinghamshire Integrated Care System (ICS).
Promoting health literacy is everyone’s responsibility, as up to 6 in 10 of the adult population struggles to understand health information. This means employees working in health and social care who are ‘health literacy aware’ can better support those groups they work with.

To enable organisations to become more health and digital literacy friendly, Digital Notts have partnered with the Patient Information Forum to develop a free, CPD-accredited training course for Nottingham and Nottinghamshire ICS employees.

The eLearning course provides learners with an understanding of the importance of health and digital literacy. It also provides some simple techniques to check understanding and improve communication with citizens.
Once enrolled, you will cover topics around:

  • Module 1 – Introduction to health literacy
  • Module 2 – Writing in plain language
  • Module 3 – Digital literacy and involving users
  • Module 4 – Communicating risks and benefit and supporting behaviour change

You will also have access to a range of helpful resources to aid your understanding.

Individuals who complete all four modules of this course will gain 2 hours towards their Continuing Professional Development.

The course and modules will be accessed through the Patient Information Forum’s website.
