World Health Day
Date posted: April 7, 2016
Today is World Health Day, and this year’s theme is Beat Diabetes.
In 2013, Project READ Literacy Network Waterloo-Wellington published the Diabetes Essential Skills Kit (D.E.S.K.). It includes Learning Modules that address 6 common barriers to a patient’s independent diabetes management. And, a separate document contains Essential Skills Profiles for literacy practitioners and health professionals that reflect the tasks that individuals living with diabetes have to perform on a regular basis.
