Description

The hepatitis B story book is designed to be used by health workers when discussing chronic hepatitis B with their newly diagnosed clients who have limited health literacy.

The resource aims to improve the client's capacity to self-manage their illness. The book uses the 'teach-back' method where the health worker asks the client to repeat back the information so the health worker can be sure the client has understood the information. It also uses plain language and pictures to assist the health workers.

There are two versions of the resource:

The resource was developed in partnership with St Vincent's Hospital, the Victorian Aboriginal Community Controlled Health Organisation (VACCHO), Victorian Infectious Disease, Multicultural Health and Support Service, ISIS Primary Care and Hepatitis and funded by the Inner North West Melbourne Medicare Local.
