Helen Osborne will lead a series of activities designed to help participants move from general health literacy know-how to specific and realistic action-planning. The goal of this dynamic session is that participants leave prepared to start doing what’s needed to improve health literacy in their setting. This works best as the closing session for a longer conference.
- Identifying key concepts heard, learned, or introduced earlier in the conference.
- Brainstorming effective and practical ways to improve health understanding.
- Overcoming obstacles when putting health literacy into practice.
- Identifying at least one action to take as a result of today’s learning. In other words, finding ways to be a Health Literacy Hero.
Once you and Helen agree to work together, she will:
- Customize presentations. Helen will ask you to complete a Pre-Program Questionnaire (PPQ) and then schedule a call to discuss it. This way, Helen can adapt her talk to meet the specific needs, goals, and preferences of your audience.
- Provide a master copy of her handout. This is not a collection of slides. Instead, Helen’s handouts are filled with valuable how-to information and resources that participants can use as reference after the presentation ends.
- Introduce you to Jones & Bartlett Learning to discuss discounts when purchasing multiple copies of her book, Health Literacy from A to Z: Practical Ways to Communicate Your Health Message, Second Edition.
- Work with you to obtain continuing education credits. This includes providing a timed agenda with teaching formats and behavioral objectives. Helen will also send you her CV.
- Help promote your event. Helen will gladly review your promotional materials and be available for radio and television interviews.
