Video showing the teach back technique in hepatitis b context

by Jan 11, 2016Health Literacy, News0 comments

In partnership with St Vincent’s Hospital and the Melbourne Primary Care Network, we have developed a resource for practitioners which demonstrates the ‘teach back’ technique in a hepatitis B context.

Teach back is a technique clinicians can use with clients to reduce the chance of misunderstanding important health information. The technique can assist patients to understand and engage in their own care and improves health literacy. This resource has been developed in partnership with St. Vincent’s Hospital and the Melbourne Primary Care Network.
