                  Patient Safety Through the Eyes of Health Literacy

                  The Health and Wellness Education department at Sidra Medicine is hosting its fourth Health Literacy Conference from 18 to 19 October 2024.

                  Themed as "Patient Safety through the eyes of health literacy”, this year’s conference, in recognition of October’s International Health Literacy month, will focus on the critical role of health literacy in ensuring patient safety among healthcare professionals, policymakers, educators, and patients themselves.

                  Health literacy is crucial for maintaining patient safety in healthcare settings as individuals with higher levels of health literacy are better equipped to comprehend medical information, navigate healthcare settings, and adhere to treatment plans effectively. Conversely, limited health literacy often leads to misunderstandings, errors in medication intake, missed appointments, and overall poorer health outcomes.

                  By fostering a culture of comprehensive health literacy, healthcare professionals can empower patients to make informed decisions about their health, thereby reducing medical errors and promoting safer healthcare practices.

                  Conference Objectives

                  • Discuss the critical role of health literacy in ensuring patient safety among healthcare professionals, policymakers, educators, and patients themselves.
                  • Discuss strategies to enhance patient safety thorough the implication of health literacy principles among patients, caregivers, and healthcare providers
                  • Facilitate collaboration between healthcare stakeholders, including providers, educators, universities researchers, policymakers, and patient advocates, to develop and implement effective strategies for improving health literacy and patient safety across the healthcare setting

                                Patient Safety Through the Eyes of Health Literacy

                                The Health and Wellness Education department at Sidra Medicine is hosting its fourth Health Literacy Conference from 18 to 19 October 2024.

                                Themed as "Patient Safety through the eyes of health literacy”, this year’s conference, in recognition of October’s International Health Literacy month, will focus on the critical role of health literacy in ensuring patient safety among healthcare professionals, policymakers, educators, and patients themselves.

                                Health literacy is crucial for maintaining patient safety in healthcare settings as individuals with higher levels of health literacy are better equipped to comprehend medical information, navigate healthcare settings, and adhere to treatment plans effectively. Conversely, limited health literacy often leads to misunderstandings, errors in medication intake, missed appointments, and overall poorer health outcomes.

                                By fostering a culture of comprehensive health literacy, healthcare professionals can empower patients to make informed decisions about their health, thereby reducing medical errors and promoting safer healthcare practices.

                                Conference Objectives

                                • Discuss the critical role of health literacy in ensuring patient safety among healthcare professionals, policymakers, educators, and patients themselves.

                                • Facilitate collaboration between healthcare stakeholders, including providers, educators, universities researchers, policymakers, and patient advocates, to develop and implement effective strategies for improving health literacy and patient safety across the healthcare setting
