*** Second Session Added ***
Due to popular demand, a second HeLLOTas! Community of Practice: Navigating Difficult Communication session has been added on Friday 29 May 2020 from 11am-12noon.
TasCOSS is offering free statewide peer learning Community of Practice sessions using the HeLLOTas! Toolkit. Are you an organisation who wants to respond to community members by:
- providing information that is easy to understand and use; and
- assisting people to find their way in health and community services?
The one-hour sessions will have an information component on an aspect of organisational health literacy as well as the opportunity to share as a group.
PART ONE: Communicating Difficult Information
Michelle will explain the teach-back method, incorporating some examples from health context and how it could be used in community service context.
PART TWO: Starting Difficult Conversations
Veronica will introduce the 26TEN Chat steps and lead a few examples of starting difficult conversations.
You can join the group remotely using Microsoft Teams. Details on how to join the Microsoft Teams session will be distributed closer to the date.

TasCOSS is part of 26TEN and the Health Literacy Network, people and organisations working together to improve literacy and numeracy in Tasmania. HeLLOTas! is a project supported by Public Health Services, Department of Health and Primary Health Tasmania under the Australian Government’s Primary Health Networks Program.
