Raising the awareness of health literacy in Tasmania

Client: Department of Health and Humans Services, Tasmania    

Problem:

63% of Tasmanians do not have adequate health literacy to meet the demands of modern life. The Population Health area of the Department of Health and Humans Services is responsible for increasing the capacity of internal staff (12,000 staff members) and other Tasmania heath care workers in the delivery of services that increase health literacy. These learners are not able to access the department’s Learning Management System. The Population Health area has been working with Medicare Local Tasmania and Sprout Labs to address these internal and external resources.

Approach:

Sprout Labs developed a resource using Glasshouse that is based around a series of scenarios.  


The usage of the resource is being tracked using Google Analytics and xAPI.

The resource can be seen at DHHS Health Literacy

DHHS now has an engaging and effective resource to increase their staff’s capacity in the area of health literacy.
