The HEAL Project – Health Education and Learning for our Community

The HEAL Project aims to support and promote health education and literacy in Ireland by guiding public and patients to reliable online health information which is approved by the health sector and freely accessible.

HEAL is a joint pilot project run by the public and health library sectors within the Dublin area.  The partners in this pilot project for health literacy are the four public library authorities in Dublin (Dublin City, Dun Laoghaire-Rathdown, Fingal and South Dublin), librarians and staff in St Vincent’s Healthcare Group, and researchers from the UCD School of Nursing Midwifery and Health Systems.

This Beta site is to get your views on what features are important and helpful to you in navigating the huge quantities of information on health that you meet in your everyday life.
