Health Literacy information 

We're delighted to recommend the following freely available ebook.

International Handbook of Health Literacy was published yesterday open access:

You may be particularly interested to look at Dr Evelyn McElhinney’s contribution at chapter 39 ‘Health literacy practices of adults in an avatar-based immersive social virtual world: a sociocultural perspective of new media health literacies’

Also chapter 28 by Graham Kramer, Blythe Robertson, Phyllis Easton and Andrew Pearson ‘Developing health literacy policy in Scotland: a case study’.

The Health Literacy Short term Working Group is meeting at Glasgow Caledonian University on 12th August 2019 at 1.30 pm. The minutes for the last group meeting in October 2018 are available.

This group is a sub-group from the Information Literacy Community of Practice. If you'd like further details about either group, please contact Jenny Foreman, Scottish Government Library on 0131 244 4556.
