Health literacy review: A guide

Tool

posted by WM Admin on 22 May 2015

A health literate organisation makes health literacy a priority and integral to quality service improvement. It makes health literacy part of all aspects of its service planning, design, delivery, and performance evaluation.

This guide and the health literacy reviews section on the Ministry of Health website have been developed with input from DHBs, to support health organisations undertake a health literacy review. They draw on international best practise for health literate organisations (the 6 Dimensions) tailored for the New Zealand health setting.
