Health Information Week is here again, from 4 July to 10 July. The campaign is national and multi-sector, aimed at promoting high quality health and wellbeing information for the general public. Its project team includes the Patient Information Forum (PIF), NHS Health Education England, NHS Scotland, NHS Wales, The Reading Agency and Libraries Connected.
The need for health information that people can trust has been especially important over the past two years, and this week aims to highlight quality resources as well as fact checking sites.
Health Information Week has a set of themes for 2022, but organisations promoting #HIW2022 will also be highlighting resources particular to their aims, all using #HIW2022 across social media channels.
The themes for 2022 are:
- Translated patient information (Monday 4 July)
- Long Covid (Tuesday 5 July)
- Your Health Collection (Wednesday 6 July)
- Kidney Health (Thursday 7 July)
- Media Literacy (Friday 8 July)
- Heart Healthy (Saturday 9 July)
- Arthritis (Sunday 10 July)
Resource sheets are available for all the themes via the Health Information Week website.
The site has resources and ideas for if you would like to promote your own health information, alongside quality checked resources that can be promoted.
