Fit for Diversity: A Staff-Driven Organizational Development Process Based on the Organizational Health Literacy Responsiveness Framework

Anna Aaby, Sanne Palner, Helle Terkildsen Maindal
2020 HLRP Health Literacy Research and Practice  
Organizational health literacy responsiveness is defined as the way health information and resources are made available and accessible to people.  ...  The Org-HLR investigates organizational health literacy responsiveness within six domains: (1) leadership and culture; (2) systems, processes, and policies; (3) access to services and programs; (4) community  ...  However, the allocation of financial resources is largely defined by national program guidelines, and the commitment appears more as a managerial declaration of intent than a supported strategy.  ...
