We are a special interest group of the Society for Academic Primary Care who are interested in building the evidence base for Health Literacy. Our approach explores the impact of Health Literacy on people and their lives, and supports national policy to reduce inequalities.
We work together to discuss and develop new research ideas, run research projects, write reports and research papers, and support implementation of research findings into practice. There are also regular face-to-face meetings, discussions of ideas and collaborative work through our website. Membership is free.
We welcome patients and patient groups, health care practitioners and providers, teachers, policy makers, non-government organisations, and academics.
Our current list of stakeholders is:
- Primary and Community Health Trusts
- Hospital Trusts
- Government Departments (Health and Education)
- The National Institute of Adult Continuing Education
- Health academics
- Educational academics
- Non-government organisations
- Citizens Advice Bureaux
- Health care practitioners
- Service users
- Local authorities
We would really like to hear from you if you are a researcher, educator or practitioner interested in collaborative work.
