Health Literacy Hub’s Mission
Personalised, Patient Centred-Care
“It is more important to know what sort of person has a disease than to know what sort of disease a person has” [Hippocrates].
A patient-centred approach promotes the active participation of the individual in the clinical decisions and ensures that their preferences, needs and values are respected.
Health Literacy Hub is a platform built around these core needs:
Fast access to reliable health advice
Clear comprehensive information and support
Involvement in decisions and respect for preferences
Improving Patient-Practitioner Communication
More accurate diagnosis
Higher adherence to the therapeutic strategy
Improved long-term health
Providing Informed Consent
Research shows that most of the material and information related to informed consent that are delivered during the consultation are difficult to understand, leading to a misevaluation of the potential risks and complications of a medical procedure, and critical legal and ethical issues.
A better comprehension of the information provided enables improved content retention, the opportunity to ask for clarification wherever needed, and to express satisfaction with the suggested medical procedure or treatment plan.
