buzz launches Better Information Programme
buzz’s Knowledge Service is launching a new programme to raise awareness of the different sources of health information and how to decide if they can be trusted, a timely topic given the recent rise of misinformation and fake news. The Better Information Programme is a half-day course which will be open to all health and social care organisations in Manchester in November.
The course will focus on the following key areas:
- Assessing the wide range of health information available both online and in print
- Spotting poor quality or potentially harmful health information
- Raising awareness of the importance of health literacy
- Producing accessible and accurate health information
- Building confidence in signposting to evidence-based sources
If you work in health and social care in the city of Manchester region we hope to see you at one of the events soon!
Keep checking our website and Twitter accounts @buzzmanc and @Knowledge_GMMH for upcoming training dates. If you have any questions, want to find out more or would like to be updated on course dates please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
