Join the virtual launch event for the refreshed Collective Force for Health and Wellbeing Action Plan

Join the virtual launch of the refreshed Collective Force for Health and Wellbeing Action Plan.

The event will take place online on Tuesday 22 February, 10am – 12pm.

The refreshed action plan has been developed by the Scottish Library and Information Council, the ALLIANCE, the Digital Health and Care Innovation Centre, and the Scottish Government Health Literacy and Self Management Team.

Nicola Dickie, Director of People Policy at COSLA, and Margaret Whoriskey, Deputy Director of Digital Health and Care in Scottish Government, will give keynote presentations. Margaret will expand on the role of libraries in supporting health information access and health literacy in the community, as  highlighted in the latest version of the Digital Health and Care Strategy.

The launch will also provide the opportunity to begin to explore collaborative pathfinder projects which use library services to help transform local health and care delivery, by providing a go-to place for:

  • Trusted health and wellbeing information, in digital and other media.
  • Digital, information and health literacy skills and access
  • Facilitated reading and storytelling for personal growth and therapeutic support
  • Social interaction and empathic  help and support – both face to face and digital
