Activity 1:
? Review the lecture on Health Literacy
? Reflect on the content of this lecture and apply to your own practice as a student nurse
? Briefly discuss 3 ideas from the lecture that could benefit your practice especially when working with patients with chronic illness
Activity 2:
? Connect to the following links. These links will provide some introductory information on health literacy
? This next link will take you to the Quick Start activities related to the Health Literacy Universal Precautions Toolkit.
? Begin by watching the short video. Make sure you click the small red arrow to take you to the video otherwise you go to a website. The video was developed in the USA and shows real people experiencing difficulty with their health literacy. Patients in Australia experience many of the same difficulties.
? List 3 observations related to the video that may be useful information for your practice.

Activity 3:
? Go back to the quick start tool kit and work your way through the three tools listed under number 2. There is no need to click on any of the extra links inside the tools unless you are curious. Some of the information is directed to medical staff but it can be equally applied to nursing. Answer the questions below briefly (no references of course, just your ideas and 2-3 points will do).
? In what ways would a brown bag medication review be useful in chronic illness management?
? Thinking back to your last clinical were there any tips for communicating clearly that you should incorporate into your practice?
? Read through the teach back method. Click on the 5 minute teach back video link and view the video called the Teach Back in Cardiology Practice. This video runs for about 2 minutes and is a good demonstration of the method. There is no need to link to the longer videos and slides.
? Thinking back to your recent clinical practice were there situations where you could have used this technique?
