Health Literacy – Do you know anyone who struggles with health information and messages?

Posted on 24/01/2014 by


As part of a wider project to develop a Health Literacy Toolkit for professional NHS staff, the Health Literacy project is making a Health Literacy DVD.

We are looking for people from all walks of life who may have difficulty understanding health information. This could take the form of not retaining information they are given by health professionals; not understanding medication information/dosage; confusion over drug names and/or language used; feeling unable/unwilling to ask questions; managing long term health conditions; understanding treatment options and shared decision making around their health.

If you know of any individuals or groups who may be interested in being part of this project, please contact Fiona Manson 0131-537-4230; 0787 554 5757; or
