Many thanks to everyone who supported our HHP Summer Health Campaign!
We launched the online version of our health literacy programme "Understanding & Accessing the Healthcare System" in this month of August and we are working on fundraising to be able to add in person workshops (with translations where relevant) and with phone as well as the current email support. All materials are at a reading age of nine. The workshop, includes modules:
“Your Rights as a Patient”
“How to Stand up for Yourself and Be Heard”
"Your Health Insurance Eligibility and How to Sign up and Renew it (in Los Angeles)
“How to Research Online as an ePatient”
“Where to Get Help"
Followed by a Q&A.
The workshops consist of a facilitated discussion about topics covered by the workshop presentation, in a setting that allows for participants to share their stories, experiences, and what has and hasn't worked for them. This creates a community for people to rely on and go back to after the workshop is completed.
Workshop follow up includes:
A phone number and email address which can be reached with questions
An email newsletter with a sample video and text copy of the workshop and answers to questions unanswered in it
"Train the Trainer" workshops to suitable workshop attendees, trained to give the program with follow up support including meetups in their local communities, supported by HHP on an ongoing basis
HHP Online Peer to Peer Panel Events set up by the HHP Online Events Team. Similarly, to the workshops, the Peer to Peer Online Panels, follow topics in a setting that allows for patients to share their stories, experiences.
Our 2023 Holiday Health Campaign will take place in the months of November and December. I will share information on it with you in the coming weeks.
Many thanks again for all your amazing support, all of us on the HHP team really appreciate it!
