The HEAL Project – Health Education and Learning for our Community
HEAL is a pilot project run by the public and health library sector within the Dublin area. The partners in this project on 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.
HEAL aims to support and promote health education and literacy in Ireland by guiding the public and patients to reliable online health information which is approved by the health sector and freely accessible.
