Victorian Primary Care Partnership

Health Literacy is a strategic priority for most PCPs, who have been taking steps to embed health literacy competencies across their partnerships for over 15 years. A lack of affordable and accessible professional development opportunities in health literacy for organisations and other barriers, such as travel and costs associated with upskilling staff, was the driving force behind the development of an online health literacy training course. A partnership was formed between the 28 PCPs to develop a training package designed to provide free and accessible professional development in health literacy for all staff within organisations across Victoria.
