Gippsland Guide to becoming a Health Literate Organisation
The Gippsland Primary Care Partnerships have created the Gippsland Guide to becoming a Health Literate Organisation, developed specifically to align with the accreditation standards of Gippsland Health Services.
The aim of this Guide is to support a consistent approach for health organisations in their understanding, awareness and implementation of best practice health literacy. This Guide will provide organisations with a range of information, tools and resources that can be used to become a health literate organisation.
The Guide has been designed to allow organisations to undertake manageable quality improvement cycles to work toward becoming a Health Literate Organisation. Organisations are not expected to implement all quality improvement activities simultaneously. Individual organisations should prioritise improvement activities and determine based on their organisational capacity, which improvements they will implement first.
