Health Literacy Development Course 2018

The Health Literacy Development Course, delivered by the Centre for Culture, Ethnicity and Health, is designed to build the capacity of agencies to respond to health literacy at both a client and an organisational level. The course provides support to refine and progress a series of appropriate health literacy interventions tailored to your workplace, and practical information on building workplace capacity to become a health literate organisation. You’ll be supported by a local community of practice to share your learnings, and a dedicated CEH staff advisor.

Course details:
The course will run from March 2018 to September 2018, with four full-day workshops held bi-monthly. Participants will also complete preparation tasks prior to each workshop; and undertake two small projects of approximately 40 hours within their organisation between modules.

Who should do this course?
The course will particularly suit managers, coordinators and team leaders from reception or first contact with clients, communications, quality, health promotion, and service delivery. Each organisation should be prepared to send two participants to work in partnership over the duration of this course.

Applications for the HLDC 2018 are currently open. Fees will be partially subsidised by IEPCP for PCP partner organisations.
