This submission from the Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) and the Health Libraries Australia (HLA) group focuses on the potential to improve knowledge support to Australia’s health systems as an integral part of the development of a national e-health strategy.
The Digital Health Literacy – Empowering your community to manage their own health future online training program includes information that will enable public library and health library staff to support and guide the community to navigate and understand the Federal Government digital health initiatives, such as My Health Record and how to access online health and well-being resources through libraries.
The Australian Library and Information Association (ALIA) is supportive of the proposed implementation plan’s structure, vision, foundations and focus areas. In summary:
