NHS Lothian-Health Literacy
The task at hand is to evaluate, reflect and communicate the various changes in value within a given context. This context is centred around NHS Lothian and the different factors in the organisation. The value changes are concerned with exchange values, perceived values and social value systems. A major global issue is health literacy- how can we make health care more accessible to people, help them understand illnesses and use information and services in order to care for their health. Initial research into key factors affecting health literacy, across the world and then more specifically in Scotland and Lothian itself, will be useful in identifying areas for design opportunities.
