Communicating Health Toolkit
The Communicating Health Toolkit is an evidence-based resource with tips and advice to help health professionals communicate about health-related topics using channels such as social media.
Why is this toolkit important for health professionals?
The Communicating Health Toolkit has been created to empower health professionals by providing you with evidence-based, best-practice recommendations for effective communication, utilising the principles of social marketing.
Many health professionals may be familiar with O'Toole's (Communication: Core Interpersonal Skills for Healthcare Professionals,2020) communication model focusing on the ultimate goal of person-centred care. The Communicating Health Toolkit extends those skills beyond the therapeutic relationship and person-centred care to an audience-centred approach with a larger population outcome as the goal.
