Health literacy has been a key activity area within the Inner North West Primary Care Partnership (INW PCP) 2013-2017 Strategic Plan.
In late 2015 the INW PCP formed a research partnership with Deakin University to implement a health literacy project that formed part of a PhD study under the Ophelia Victoria Project.
The Project involved piloting the Organisational Health Literacy Responsiveness (Org-HLR) Self-Assessment Tool with agencies across the North and Western Metropolitan regions.
The aim of this project was to pilot the Org-HLR Tool* with partner organisations across the north and west metropolitan regions.
