A two-day intensive masterclass for managers, executives, health professionals, health planners, policy makers, researchers, and those active in health promotion and community services.
Health Literacy and Ophelia Masterclass - April 12/13, Melbourne, Australia
12th April 2017 to 13th April 2017
Using the latest health literacy research and practices, this masterclass will demonstrate how to develop fit-for-purpose interventions to reduce inequalities in health service access and engagement.
The masterclass will introduce the Ophelia process (OPtimising HEalth LIterAcy and Access), a structured process for identifying and responding to health literacy needs
by co-designing locally relevant interventions. Measurement of health literacy will also be presented, including the widely used Health Literacy Questionnaire (HLQ) and its use in needs assessment, evaluation, and quality improvement.
