Health Literacy in Context: International Perspectives $87.00
Editors: Deborah L. Begoray (University of Victoria, British Columbia, Canada), Doris Gillis (St Francis Xavier University, Nova Scotia, Canada) and Gillian Rowlands (London South Bank University, London, UK)
Book Description:
Health literacy offers a new way of thinking about how we engage with information about and for health, both as users and providers of information. As a multifaceted construct, health literacy weaves together ideas drawn from health and adult education/literacy disciplines. The complexity of health literacy necessarily reflects the contexts in which it applies and the perspectives of those who integrate and examine it in their research and practice. This book captures the richness in thinking about health literacy by presenting perspectives of international researchers and practitioners who have been working on health literacy in diverse settings and contexts.
