Health Literacy Case Studies

Health Literacy

This resource provides and highlights examples of local and international health literacy practice to enhance understanding.

A template for evaluating and recording case-studies on health literacy was developed to provide information which may support the development of health literacy in policy and practice.

A number of case studies, submitted by members of the working group, have been collated for reference and can be used to shape future practice in health literacy. You can share examples of your work on the case study database or highlight a useful resource.
