IC-HEALTH Improving Digital Health Literacy in Europe

Description

The project IC-Health will assess the impact of an improved digital health literacy on groups with very diverse features in terms of social, cultural background, level of digital literacy and health literacy. Insights gained from working with these groups will also allow formulating recommendations for actions at a bigger scale.

 IC-Health is a project to develop a series of Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCS) to support European citizens providing them a means to better navigate health information on the web and so improve their overall digital health literacy.

IC-Health has brought together representatives from five specific population groups to co-create tailored MOOCs;

The project will target the following population cohorts and actively involve representatives from those target groups in the project activities: Children, Adolescents, Pregnant and lactating women, Older people (60+) and Diabetes patients.

MOOCs have been developed in eight languages: English, French, Italian, Danish, German, Swedish, Dutch and Spanish.
