EURASHE launches a new project on health literacy education

The European Association of Institutions in Higher Education (EURASHE) has recently embarked on a new project in order to create health literacy experts by improving the relevance and quality of education of medical and nursing students in Europe. The IMPACCT project (“IMproving PAtient-centered Communication Competences”) will develop, implement, evaluate, and disseminate an evidence-based Health Literacy Educational Program.

The programme will consist of about 20 learning units. Taken together, these units reflect the fact that a comprehensive approach is needed and that, in order to enhance the health and well-being of people with low health literacy, students need a wide range of health literacy competences related to clinical competences, but also competences for communication, collaboration, leadership, and quality assurance, to prevent health literacy related problems.
