Health Education: Shared Study Materials

      From the health support point of view, increasing “health literacy” became one of the essential tasks of our Centre. It is hardly debatable that if we want to support health of any individual person, be it a client or a suffering patient, we have to ensure that the person is adequately educated in taking care about his/her own health. Surprisingly, a serious health education does not seem to be in the main focus of the professional institutions despite the obvious fact that this activity alone can positively contribute to sustainable healthcare systems around the world. For this task, and as an addition to the person-tailored health education and counselling, the Centre will be organizing regular health-oriented lectures providing people, and professionals as well, with the reliable, evidence based scientific knowledge and practical advices for health support and health maintenance. The Centre also becomes a platform for international cooperation and knowledge sharing via organization of the congresses and symposia. An inevitable role in education is client-friendly web site and regular publication activities in health-related journals and books. Thus, at this section of our web, we publish selected scientific presentations, popular health-related presentations, articles, books, interviews, recommendations and links to other health-dedicated web sites, which we find reliable, educative and in an agreement with the complex philosophy in PPPM.
