Main Topics:

  • In recent years, science has increasingly focused on individual health literacy. Information and services relating to health are difficult for many people to find, understand or use.
  • Therefore, in addition to individual health literacy, organizational health literacy is also becoming increasingly important. The idea is that healthcare facilities help people to find their way through the complex healthcare system.
  • The research project “Organizational Health Literacy in the Hamburg Region (OHL-HAM)” developed a catalog of criteria regarding organizational health literacy. This is  an important contribution to better organizational health literacy and quality assurance in the Hamburg region and beyond.
