Disseminating consumer health information

Disseminating

This section explores the important elements involved in disseminating consumer health information

Getting the right information to people at the right time, in the right place and in the right format can be a challenge. How your information materials and resources reach your audience will have a significant impact on how effective they are and it is important to plan your dissemination strategy at the start of any information project. Who your audience is, what you want your resources to do, the shelf life of your materials and how much money you have to spend will all influence your methods of distribution.

This section of the web site explores the important elements involved in disseminating consumer health information; from digital formats to paper based resources, and information aimed at specific audiences.
