“Coming to Terms”
Health literacy refers to how people understand information about health and healthcare and use this to make decisions about their care. “Coming to Terms” explores the use of clinical language by health professionals in the AOD sector and how interpretation and comprehension can impact upon healthcare outcomes for our clients.
The Coming to Terms Project is based at Insight and was funded by the Mental Health Alcohol and Drug Statewide Clinical Network. The Project was developed with involvement from statewide public health alcohol and drug services, key external partners and clients from Alcohol and Drug services in Queensland whose contribution was key to the success of this project.
