    FVA lunchtime learning sessions are aimed at raising the skills and capacities of local third sector providers interested in improving or enhancing their provision in Fife.

    Health literacy is about people having enough knowledge, understanding, skills and confidence to use health information, being active partners in their care and understanding how to navigate health and social care systems.  (See Making it Easy: National Health Literacy action plan, Scottish Government 2014 for more information).  The aim of this training session is to provide staff with the knowledge and skills around health literacy to help clients self-manage and maintain good health.  

    At this session, Louise Hutton (NHS Fife) and Alison Ramsay (Fife Health and Social Care Partnership) will guide us through the following learning outcomes: 

    • What is health literacy and why it is important 
    • Understand how good health literacy skills can support self-managing health conditions 
    • How poor health literacy leads to health inequalities 
    • Understand who is at risk of poor health literacy and how to support them to overcome the barriers they face when accessing health information
    • Apply health literacy tools and techniques to check for understanding
