Health Literacy explained

If you want to write something that 93% of the UK public will understand, you need to write it for a 9 year old. This is the stark reality of health literacy: people with low health literacy have been shown to be more likely to have their condition limit their activities and have higher mortality. But how can you make sure the health information you develop for your patient group is presented at the right level?

This webinar offers rare disease patient organisations a comprehensive introduction to health literacy and aims to help you understand the process involved in developing and writing information with health literacy in mind.
