Health Information Week #HIW2020 runs from 6th July to the 12th of July and "is a national, multi-sector campaign promoting high-quality information for patients and the public. High quality health information can have a huge impact on people’s ability to stay healthy and manage illnesses effectively, giving them a better quality of life." (Health Information Week 2020

This year the focus of the week are:

  • Finding information you can trust 
  • Wellbeing

So we have joined forces with @healthinfoweek and will be holding a #WeNurses tweetchat during Health Information Week to explore the following questions:

  • What does high quality information look like?  
  • Do you feel your patients know where and how to access high quality information about their health condition? 
  • What are the barriers they face? 
  • What about broader physical and mental wellbeing health information for your patients?
  • What are the ways you effectively support them, and what are the things you find challenging? 
  • What support does your organisation provide in terms of patient information?
  • How do you find high quality information to support your own health and wellbeing as a nurse?
