Health as a topic for adult literacy programmes

Langue: EN

Posté par Jodie Crossley

Health is a rich topic to explore in adult literacy groups as some adult literacy learners are interested in finding out about health conditions which affect them or their families and some may have difficulties understanding information about health and communicating with health services.
The support pack is an outcome of the Health Literacy workstream of ALISS (Access to Local Information to Support Self Management) a Scottish Government project (see This workstream was called “My Health – Finding Local Support” which is referred to in this pack as “My Health”. The project collaborated with 2 groups of adult learners in Edinburgh with an aim of learning more about how they accessed local health support and is designed for adult literacy learners to use as a class topic.

The report explores the impact of poor literacy on accessing local support to manage long term conditions and explains how the ALISS project developed.

Developed by the Self Management Programme, Long Term Conditions Unit of Scottish Government in collaboration with the Edinburgh City
Literacy and Numeracy (CLAN) Health and Literacy Project and supported by the Long Term Conditions Alliance Scotland (LTCAS).
