A framework for health literacy

Tool

posted by WM Admin on 25 May 2015

This framework for health literacy outlines expectations for the health system, health organisations and all of the health workforce to take action that:

  • supports a ‘culture shift’ so that health literacy is core business at all levels of the health system
  • reduces health literacy demands and recognises that good health literacy practice contributes to improved health outcomes and reduced health costs.
