International “hello my name is” Day

Beng Poh

23 July 2018

International #hello my name is day is on Monday 23 July.  This is an annual event to promote person-centred care and recognise the work of Chris Pointon and the late Dr Kate Granger.

The Health Literacy Network invite you to raise awareness and show your support for the campaign and the day.

Here are some ideas to get you started but be creative, have fun and think outside the square:

  • Hold a morning tea
  • Have a bake off – fund-raise and donate to a charity
  • Post a selfie/video or group #hello my name is photo on our Facebook page and share with your friends using the hashtag #hellomynameis
  • Create a display
  • Enter a photo or video of your activity/display to be in the draw for a mystery prize

Resources for the event can be obtained by contacting the Health Literacy Network.

To enter send a photo of your activity or display to health.literacy@health.tas.gov.au by COB Friday 27 July. The winner will be announced the next week.
