  • Capturing views on how to reach people with information for wellbeing

    Created: 14/04/2021

    The ‘Enabling Use of Information for Wellbeing Through Remote Technology’ project will co-design and test a training framework for library and third sector staff in using remote technology to facilitate health literacy, creative reading and storytelling. It aims to combine the power of health and wellbeing information, remote technology, human empathy and communication to support resilience, recovery, and renewal in response to COVID-19.

    Project leads are calling on third sector staff and library staff to take part in a 15 minute survey to inform the development of the training framework so that it can enable to staff use remote technology to support with:

    • Health literacy, specifically in using health information for self management and shared decisions.
    • Creative reading and storytelling for wellbeing.

    This survey will close on Wednesday 28 April 2021.

    This work is funded by the Scottish Government Health Literacy and Self-Management Team, and is managed by the Digital Health & Care Innovation Centre (DHI) in partnership with the Scottish Library and Information Council (SLIC), and the Health and Social Care Alliance Scotland (the ALLIANCE). SMCI Associates has been commissioned to develop, co-design and test the framework.
